Class Description: In this class students will make SafeWear buttons by covering the button form with florescent material. They’ll choose from a few different florescent colors and cut designs out of reflective material which will glow in car headlights, then glue the designs to the florescent fabric. Afterwards they cover the button form with the designed florescent material. Voila! They’ll now have a button that you can sew onto the gear and make them visible to cars and traffic.
