Masks are the essence of Carnival, stripped of great ornaments, emphasizing only the art of those who carved them.

 

From the hands of the craftsman is born a unique mask that will give life to the entire village and cheer the visitors.

 

The masked transmontanos symbolize the life that is renewed in the spring, the entrance in a fruitful and prosperous time, the passage from the puberty to the adult age. The community revitalizes itself and reinforces ties in these celebrations.

 

Come to know and enjoy a unique experience, creating your family mask!

Program

Single day

Departure towards Vila Boa de Ousilhão, Vinhais.

09h30 Meeting with the artisan in his workshop. Welcome to the taste of regional products.

Beginning the process of creating the family mask with the support of the artisan.

Process description:

All the work is developed over a stump (a piece of trunk also chestnut).

The magic of each mask starts with choosing a single chestnut trunk because each mask is unique.

Later on, the so-called mask design is started on the outside of the mask, using the chisel, gouges and a razor for this process, always keeping in mind the space that will occupy eyes, nose and mouth.

When the outer part is already defined, the inner part is then sculpted to fit the face, using the same tools.

To finish it is necessary to make the holes for the eyes, nose and mouth, for this the drill is used.

It finishes with a general polishing thus being ready to play to the Carnival.

Follow towards Podence.

13h00 Regional lunch in the company of a Masked man.
