More than a dozen people turned out for the mask-making, clowning and acting workshops held last weekend at the Dunster Fine Arts School. Mask-making workshops were led by award-winning mask maker and theatre designer Melody Anderson; acting workshops were led by award-winning actor and playwright Peter Anderson. Many of the masks beared a “mood” and were used during the acting workshops.
