Traditional Mask Making with a local craftsman

Try your hand at a centuries-old craft: mask making. This activity is fantastic for families to enjoy together, whether you want to start from beginning and carve your mask to make your own masterpiece or just have your children paint their own mask.

Masks have been a crucial component of Sri Lankan rites since ancient times, carrying on a practice that dates back several centuries. Few families still observe this long-standing custom near the island's southern shore. These masks are popular as souvenirs and can be seen as décor in many local homes thanks to their colorful facades and unique history. Your local craftsman will teach you the age old techniques of mask making and guide you on how to carve and paint your own traditional mask at this experience which you get to take back home with you.
