The pandemic has been pretty hard on all of us. Even with vaccines rolling out, we need to prioritize staying safe and healthy at all times. Join us for this mask-making workshop where we will go over how to craft them by hand and the resources you can use to do so.

Saturday, February 20, 6pm-7:30pm EST
Zoom link will be sent closer to the event date.

Description:

This quick workshop will teach Queer Asians how to hand-sew their own face masks and stay safe during the COVID-19 pandemic. As the workshop is only an hour and a half, we likely won’t be able to finish everything on time, but we hope to equip people with the basics to help them start on their journey to safer, creative quarantine habits.

People from Ontario who sign up before February 6th will get sent a care package with a mask-making kit (while supplies last), which will hopefully arrive before the 20th. Anyone who signs up after February 6th is welcome to attend, but will likely receive a mask-making kit after the workshop. Regardless, we can’t guarantee anyone will get their kit in time, but we’ll do our best! Even if you don’t have the supplies below, that’s fine; you still might learn a thing or two from watching us!

SUPPLIES (necessary marked with *):
-Computer / Phone (for Zoom)*
-Scissors

THE BELOW WILL BE PROVIDED TO YOU IF YOU SIGN UP BEFORE FEBRUARY 6TH:
-Two different types of fabrics cut into rectangles
-Printed pattern in paper of mask
-1 or 2 sewing needles
-A small spool of thread
-Elastic cords for securing to ears
