Sew Your Own Mask
Masks? We've got you covered at Top Floor Art... whether you're a complete beginner and want to learn how to make a simple handsewn mask or you're more confident with a machine and ready to tackle those pleats, we have the workshops for you! We have a lovely selection of funky fabrics with all you need to complete your mask and learn the skills to make them at home. Plus we can solve your Christmas gift giving in one go... handmade masks for everyone!
In this workshop, our tutor, Jaele, will walk you through the basic design and fit of a good cloth mask with adjustable elastic and a pocket for a filter. Using durable, washable, and high quality materials. We'll quickly go over basic sewing machine techniques before moving on to trickier skills such as pleating, basting and top stitching.
We'll discuss types of fabric, what makes a good mask, how to wash and wear them and types of filters that can be used.
Spaces will be limited to allow for social distancing guidelines (4 people per workshop), and hand sanitising facilities will be available throughout.
