Special Effects Makeup @ Ashland Public Library

Horror authors are visiting the nearby town of Ashland on the 25th (more info here: https://framinghamlibrary.org/calendar/event/mini-horror-book-festival-the-ashland-library), so we’re teaming up with them to celebrate the spooky this winter!

Decimated Designs is a professional special effects makeup and prop studio located in New Britain Connecticut, creating practical visual effects for horror movies as well as giving educational workshops. In this workshop, they will be walking us through special effects basics, answering questions and doing demonstrations.  This class is for anyone who wants to work on makeup for cosplay, next year's Halloween costume, or to just get a basic crash-course on sfx makeup.

All levels of experience are welcome and participation is encouraged!

Mini Horror Book Festival @ The Ashland Library! thumbnail Photo

Mini Horror Book Festival @ The Ashland Library!

We're so excited to welcome horror authors Gretchen Felker-Martin, Christopher Golden, Eric LaRocca, Errick Nunnally, and Paul Tremblay to Ashland for our very first Mini-Fest! If you've read their books, you already know they are spooky, thought provoking, and scare-your-pants off fun. The day will include a panel discussion (which will be hybrid so you can come in person or watch online!), small group conversations, and a book sale/signing. So, grab your horror lovin' friends (because it's no fun to be so scared on your own smile, and come on down to the Ashland library!

Books for the book sale will be provided by Aesop's Fable. You can PREORDER books by any of our authors and Aesop's will bring your books to the Fest - easy peasy and no worries that they'll sell out! - https://aesopsfable.com/pages/horror-festival
