Face masks are in high demand right now, so getting your hands on one has proved difficult. But it turns out it's easy to make your own! So if you've been wondering how to make a face mask or are just looking for useful things to do at home, Sydney Creative is here to help!

In this live streaming sewing session, you will learn how to make your own washable cotton face mask using a sewing machine. (For the hand stitching version of this class, please click here).

Open up your ClassBento Box and inside you'll find all the materials to stitch along with Sophie and make one mask. The mask you will be making will have a pocket at the back so you can slip a filter inside. This helps filter out harmful particles in the air increasing your protection when you leave home.

Facemasks can help to limit the spread of Coronavirus and are a great DIY project if you're looking fun things to do at home. Sewing is also a great practical skill to work on during this time at home and can be very relaxing for the mind!

Sydney Creative was launched in 2019 by Textile Designer Sophie Parry.

Creativity is, and always has been, the driving force in Sophie's life. From an early age she would always swap the dolls and toys for a pen and notepad. She never minded being left to her own devices while her parents needed to go shopping. With a colouring-in book to hand Sophie happily sat quietly either scribbling away or patiently filling in each tiny hole in the fabric of her red tights – the latter much to their frustration.

Sophie's creativity and passion for art led to an interest in fabrics, sewing and textiles. It was at university where Sophie found her feet in the textiles profession, developing the skills and techniques that would guide her on her own journey in textile design. During this time, Sophie won several awards for her textile work and was chosen to exhibit her final third year project at the prestigious New Designers exhibition in London.

Upon graduating, Sophie left her hometown in Wales to experience different cultures around the world. She settled in Sydney and decided to launch her Handmade Baby Boutique brand Scribble & Sew. In 2018 Sophie introduced sewing workshops through Scribble & Sew and later re-branded as Sydney Creative.

Sydney Creative currently offer unique and flexible sewing workshops for busy Sydneysiders. Sophie understands that not everyone has a full day to spend learning how to sew, which is why she launched the Introduction To Sewing workshop. In the future, Sophie plans to offer more creative workshops such as painting, punch needling and social sewing.
