Where to purchase a Ballarat-made face mask

Face coverings will soon become mandatory across all of Victoria.

That means from Sunday 2 August at 11:59pm, you will need a face covering whenever you leave home – no matter where you live.

And while it's important we're all wearing a mask and protecting one another, it doesn't mean they can't be stylish.

To help you in your search for a mask, we've put together a list of local creators and businesses currently making and selling them.

You can also purchase disposable face masks from most local pharmacies, DEJ packaging, Lincraft (as well as downloadable patterns for DIY masks) and at Ballarat's two Bunnings Warehouse locations.
