Masks for the whole family
In response to COVID-19 and guidelines for safety in social and workplace gatherings, the newest fashion staple is ... ta-da! Face masks! With all kinds of tutorials, do-it-yourselfers and professional sewers are working overtime to supply friends, family and front line workers.
Keeping up with the demand is going to be a challenge. But there is nothing local artists like more than a challenge and you can be sure you will see more variety and choices now that masks will be around for awhile.
BAYarts has reached out to several locals to help meet this demand as masks become personal and, well, fashionable. Available now is an assortment from Four Seasons Spring that come in sets of 2-5 in various patterns and sizes for adults and kids. There is also a Mommy & Me set and a unique hand-embroidered denim one, just in time for Mother's Day or teacher's gifts.
It looks like masks will be part of our culture for a while, why not mix it up and wear your personal style? You can get masks now at BAYarts' online shop for pick up, shop-bayarts.square.site. When BAYarts reopens its doors, you can bet the volunteers and faculty will have some creative mask designs of their own.
