This week our podcast is a bit different – we’re making face masks. Current guidance in Scotland is that “in enclosed spaces, where physical distancing is more difficult and where there is a risk of close contact with multiple people who are not members of your household, you should wear a face covering. People must by law wear a face covering in shops and on public transport and public transport premises such as railway and bus stations and airports. “

Face masks can be expensive to buy, but you can make them easily yourself from old t-shirts, shirts, pyjamas etc, and the instructions are in this podcast, and we’ve backed them up with a video. And from experience – unless you are making a mask for a child, use a really big dinner plate to draw round.
