Mask Project at Kathmandu University (KU)


On her first visit to Nepal in January 2006 Celia Washington, inspired by the American artist Saul Steinberg, ran a paper-bag mask-making workshop with the first year students at KU. The project was run with Kishor Rajbhandari, lecturer at KU and Head of Sculpture.

These photographs of the students masks record the project and were taken by her and Kishor.  The photographs and the masks were shown in an exhibition at the British Council, Kathmandu, in January 2007.
