Learning the art of the mask

Meet the Artist

RaineMaker Studio is the maker space of Scottish mask artist Lorraine Pritchard.

A professional model maker for over 20 years, artist and jewellery maker Lorraine has for the past few years been developing her skills as a mask artist, having spent much of the past year studying extensively the art of the Venetian mask with master mask makers and artists in Florence and Venice.

Lorraine’s Venetian masks are handmade in her studio in Edinburgh, Scotland and are original works of art with many hours of design, creation and finishing going into each one.

Recently unveiled at the Edinburgh Abbeyhill Colony of Artists Exhibition, Lorraine’s latest works are 3d wearable Mask led interpretations of playing cards and can be found here.
