MAKE & DO: BOO Faces

We love holidays at Laura Ashley and Halloween is no exception-- we fancy every opportunity to create, decorate and celebrate so we were quite envious of our teammates across the pond who attended the London Design Festival and a workshop to create their very own BOO Faces! Based in the Sackler Centre of the Victoria & Albert Museum (London) the workshop used re-purposed materials and hand printing processes to form a 3D ‘BOO’ mask. The hosts, Ana and Amy from Studio Boo, encouraged attendees to get completely ‘stuck in’ with a long table of weird and wonderful craft materials from paper leaves and swatches of leather to fake hair and re-purposed pieces of metal.

To make your own, start by carving eyes in the mask and begin layering with all sorts of mad features-- from feathered beards to leafy hair or leather thong eye lashes-- the options are endless.

A BOO face starts to take shape!

 A few other BOO faces on showcase at the end of the day.

Crafting a BOO face is a fun project for mums, dads and kids with Halloween just a few weeks out.
