Balkan Festival Mask Making Workshop




Balkan Mask Workshop creations.

Get ready for the 5th annual Balkan Night Northwest by joining Mariya Apostolova in making kukeri masks. Imagination, creativity and $20 for materials is all that’s needed for this fun, family-friendly workshop on Friday, March 4th at 7pm at the Russian Community Center of Seattle.  Kukeri masks originated in Bulgaria where men would wear elaborate masks to scare away evil spirits. Similar traditions exist throughout the Balkans. The mask-wearing villagers parade and dance wildly and hope to bring health, a good harvest and happiness to the village for the year. Open to adults as well as kids, confirm you will be there by going here 

 

With or without a mask, you won’t want to miss Balkan Night Northwest on Saturday, March 5th from 3pm-midnight at Saint Demetrios Hall featuring the food and music of over one dozen Balkan countries. See details here.
