This page is meant as a starting point for our mask making workshop. This year’s conclave is all about masks. I don’t know why. Maybe because we hide behind our fire instruments and wear the fire like a mask. Some of us lose ourselves in our fire persona, some of us use that persona to empower ourselves. Personally, I have trouble interacting with other people in a social context and fire has always allowed me to be present and participate while keeping all my barriers up. Once I begin my dance, that person is me, but not me.
Also, masks are awesome.

Scary Oni mask.
Something more literal
A forest spirit could be anything really.
