I have to say that I had never tried masks before as I was always a bit afraid of them, but it felt really nice to explore how you can play different characters only with your body, not using your facial expressions at all. I loved Vicky’s enthusiasm and playfull spirit when she leads workshops. She transfers such a good, humorous, calm and kind energy that makes people want to play and experiment! – Marina Tselepi, Actress

Vicky’s workshops into mask were both playful and educational. Her passion and experience shone throughout the workshop and made her a brilliant facilitator for the world of mask. I would highly recommend her and her workshops to anyone who wishes to discover the beauty and magic of masks.” – Sarah Baxter, Theatre Director

I really loved the workshop. I’ve never worked with masks of real people before. It’s a great tool for character work and it’s great to see them come alive.” – Kari McKenna, Actress & Writer
