The workshops aim to give participants the skills and the confidence to adapt, repair and construct their own clothing.

Each workshop is self-contained and will teach you how to make your own high visibility vest.

All materials and equipment are supplied.  We use 3M Scotchlite Reflective tape and we strive to conform to Australian Standards AS/NZS 4602:1999 High Visibility Safety Garments, wherever possible.

Workshop sizes are restricted to a maximum of 5 participants.  So book early to ensure a place.  We have 4 teachers on hand to guide you through all the steps and help out wherever needed.  Our aim is to encouraging male participation, but women are very welcome too.
