Makespace is a community workshop in the centre of our city. With the exception of some great work making NHS specified PPE for Addenbrookes, the space is still in lockdown but with the support of sponsors they are giving away free mask kits to local residents: Makespace Mask Kit

I ordered a kit but I suspect it's beyond my hand sewing capability. Help with a sewing machine anyone?

The association has been considering a skill swap scheme but is still seeking advice. Anyone with a sewing machine need some bicycle maintenance?

Whatever happens I won't waste the kit, I'll make it somehow!

Thanks Makespace, the kit is designed for sizes; large (adult), small (child) and teddy. Involves the whole family! My first attempt yesterday was successful.

Makespace is a community workshop in the centre of Cambridge with equipment ranging from sewing machines and crafting tools to 3D printers, laser cutters and CNC routers. The 4000 sqft space is available 24/7 to its members who use it for commercial and personal activities, and it runs based on the amazing volunteer effort these members put in. Have a look around the makespace.org website for the whole story. For more details on the Makespace Covid-19 Response Activities, see makespace.org/covid-19. For more details on the Makespace Mask Kits, see makespace.org/mask.
