Tahlia's Masks: from theatre to art to publishing.

My masks are your noble self revealed, that secret, wise and powerful self that resides at your core. I aim to inspire the viewer with this aspect of human kind. Perhaps they will even be stimulated to seek the noble within themselves.

I've been making masks since 1980 when I first began making them for Mr Jupiter's Children's Theatre. I used my masks in visual theatre performances with Centrepiece Productions from 1988 to 2003, and I also supplied other theatre groups and still sell sets of latex commedia masks to schools via my website.

But decorative masks are my passion, and as soon as I stopped making masks for visual theatre and performance art works, I began making them for the sheer pleasure of creating something beautiful.

In 2003 when I'd had enough of travelling my show around Australia and New Zealand, I became a high school art teacher. Five years later, a different kind of inspiration hit and I began writing. I left teaching in 2008 and now divide my time between editing books for others, writing my own books and making masks depending on how the inspiration flows.

All the masks are one-only completely original designs. Some may be similar in style, but no two will ever be exactly the same.

Find out about my inspirational metaphysical and speculative fiction at http://tahlianewland.com. Most of my stories are about characters seeking their noble selves., so my artristic vision is the same, just my method of sharing it varies

Hi, I'm Tahlia Newland, I make masquerade masks and papier mache wall masks using traditional Venetian techniques and my own original designs. I think of them all as reflections of aspects of the noble self within us.

I also make some smaller plaques out of plaster that I cast in latex molds that I made myself. Some of the papier mache bases I get from China to keep the price down, but others I make myself. It's a time consuming process, a labour of love, but a great meditation. I love making them, and I hope you'll enjoy them.

Accepted payment methods

Paypal Mastercard Visa American Express Gift card
Accepts Etsy Gift Cards and Etsy Credits
Returns and exchanges
Sorry, no refunds.

If you choose shipping that does not include a tracking number I am not responsible for goods lost in the post. Generally this doesn't happen, but lost parcels cannot be replaced nor the money refunded. A partial refund will be possible if Australia Post gives me some compensation, however getting it can take up to 6 months after the postage date.
Payment
I'll ship within 1-2 days of receipt of the money, depending on what day I receive the order. (Post office isn't open in the weekends.) Paypal is fastest.

Cancellation of orders are not accepted.
Delivery
I live in NSW, Australia, and deliver by mail. Where 'with tracking' upgrades aren't offered, the shipping cost includes a tracking number. Where shipping upgrades say 'with tracking' then the basic shipping cost does NOT include a tracking number.

I also offer an Express Post option for Australia and for masks to the USA.

Goods should arrive in the USA in 1-2 weeks, and in Europe in 2-3 weeks. The fastest express to the USA is 3-4 days and costs $85 Australian dollars using the Express Courier International service. Ordinary express takes 4-7 working days and costs $45. Speed depends on customs turn around time.
