Commedia Dell’ Arte Mask Set

5 reviews

This special set of masks represents Steve’s take on the classic 16th Century Italian caricatures that have endured for centuries on stage. They represent a stereotypical hierarchy of society that provides a great mechanism for storytelling be it comedy, tragedy, or an infusion of both.

  • We designed these masks specifically to help teachers, so if you would like to use them in an educational setting, please get in touch via our contact page, so that we can let you know how to go about this. The minimum age we suggest for this set would be 13+. Due to the level of expression required for Commedia Dell’ Arte masks, they take more dexterity to assemble than many of our animal masks. For younger children, our Woodland or Jungle Animal Sets work great. 

  • Simply print the templates on paper, stick them to card, cut them out, match the numbers and join the tabs together. The Mask is scaled to fit an adult but you can make children's masks by scaling down the templates when you print - check our FAQ page for details. The templates come with instructions for an internal head band that can be adjusted by moving the fixing points to get a snug fit.

    • Supplied as an instant access PDF that you can download and print on any home printer
    • Choose to build with tape or gluing tabs
    • Robust No Poly construction to survive the wildest of parties
    • Ideal for festivals, parties, special events or simply for fun
    • Our No Poly Masks are our latest advancement in Papercraft Mask design. Whilst in keeping with our overall manifesto of helping you to create beautiful and fun things, No Poly is a completely new design-and-build experience for you - a preternatural evolution from the restrictions of Low Poly - that lets us push the boundaries of what can be achieved.

    Brilliant

    Amazing templates! Although the time it says on the sheet does not reflect the actual timings - Pantalone and Arlecchino are around 40-45 mins to do and then Il Capitano took around 1 hour 20. Brilliantly durable and clear to make though

    Hi Belinda, Thanks for your feedback! I’m pleased that the masks worked well for you, and I’m sorry that they took longer than you expected to build. The times that we use on the front of the templates are an estimate based on an average customer build time. I’ll alter them to reflect your feedback. Thanks for helping us improve the experience for future builders. Kind regards, Steve

    Just what I was looking for

    I printed the templates directly onto card. The instructions are easy to follow and I had all four masks made within a few hours.

    Covid Safe, fun and builds literacy!!

    Wintercroft has provided Arts educators with a fun and safe mask-making tool to use with students whether you are teaching from home, in classrooms or in a hybrid situation. The templates are wonderfully engineered - ingenious actually! Not only can students work on developing their characters for the stage, but Wintercroft has cleverly provided students with an engaging activity that builds literacy skills (by asking students to follow instructions precisely in order to make their masks). I highly recommend purchasing sets of the templates for your students. Very affordable.

    Commedia masks

    My theatre students are having fun but finding it tricky to put together. As of yet, none of my classes have been able to complete one.

All the best, Fletch

    Great masks!

    I decided to use your Commedia mask templates because I wanted each student to have their own mask to make them covid safe. Even though they were a bit fiddly and tricky to make, the end result was fabulous! They are very comfortable to wear, and I used a coat of white wood glue on the inside of each mask for extra strength and body. Really happy and have shared on Drama peeps Facebook group's page.
