Civil mask making workshop

Friday, August 21, 2020

Wearing masks is recommended to protect other people in closed places (e.g., public transport)  or places that is difficult to keep safety distance. This workshop introduces how to make DIY face masks with fabric (civil masks). Following the written instructions, instructor will explain the process of making three different types of civil masks. The tips of making and wearing masks will be also provided. The workshop will be online via zoom (2 hours). The workshop is primarily for teachers who want to implement activities at the school, but others are also welcome! On request, additional workshops for making stickers to personalise your civil masks using Inkscape (2D vector graphic software) and vinyl cutter will be arranged.
