Mask Making

Today in the Studio more mask are going to be made.


This project helps me make it through each day. Knowing that within this tiny act I am able to make a difference sitting in the Studio. It is a way I am able to share with my community to remind them they are not alone and that kindness and love will help us navigate this new ever changing landscape.


Thank you to all that have ordered masks from me over the last several weeks. you have enriched my life in ways I could never have anticipated… and for that I am grateful.


Currently, I have made 76 mask and I am here to continue making until the need is no longer… that being said, If you need a mask…. Let me know!


Mask Making at the Studio

Last week’s focus was about exploring the realm of possibilities, reinventing and creating new structure in the Studio. It was a busy week filled with high and lows, moments of joy and moments of sadness.  Along with many opportunities to be grateful in the moment.


I have spent a portion of my days at the sewing machine creating face mask for friends, families and people I have never met before…  This has been a way for me to redefine what community means and explore different ways that it might be expressed and supported in the future.


I am grateful for the requests for masks and the amazing support of my community for their virtual hugs and donations for supplies and staples. These gifts create a huge smile on my face and reminds me that love is what makes everything better.

If you are in need of a face mask please contact me johnmichaelkorpal.com


These were created last week some remain but most have been claimed…. there is a new batch happening today with some fun new fabric.

If you wish to donate… I would be so very grateful!!!
