West African and Caribbean Mask-Making Workshop
In addition to African dance performances, the Bamidele Dancers & Drummers offer hands-on workshops that allow students and teachers to integrate West African, Brazilian and Caribbean culture into their classroom. In their mask-making workshop, Bamidele artists will guide students step-by-step in making their own traditional-style masks out of household materials. Showing some examples for inspiration, the artists will model the process, creating new masks along with their students.
