Assiut/Assuit General

Assiut Mask Makes TV Appearance

Over the past few months, I’ve been making and sending assiut masks made from scraps and pieces of past projects.  It’s been a lot of fun – and a lot of work – but I’ve run out of scraps and pieces.  I might make some more masks in the future, but I will have to invest in more assiut before I can make more.

In the meantime, I’ve been having a blast looking at the dancers who have posted photos of their new assiut masks on Instagram, Facebook, and one even made a TV appearance!  Here’s Mahin owner of One World Dance & Music Studio in Phoenix being interviewed by AZTV channel 7 wearing one of my purple assiut masks!  If you haven’t signed up to receive Mahin’s Bellydance Quickies, follow this link to enjoy her curated content that’s a mix of dance-demos, vintage videos, DIY’s, informative blog posts and more.


I’ve really enjoyed collaborating with Mahin as part of her lecture/workshop series and I look forward to working with her in the future!  It’s so great to see her dance studio being featured on local TV.

Take care and be well!
