Being visible doesn’t have to mean looking like you’re doing highway construction. Drop in to EBC on Monday December 10th and add retroreflective trim & designs to your favourite riding clothes that will help keep you visible through those long winter nights and make accessories for yourself and your bike that can’t be missed. Bring clothing you want to embellish (cotton & other natural fibers work best), design ideas & inspiration, accessories you want to turn shiny, and things you want to turn into shiny accessories. A little retroreflective sumtin-sumtin makes a great gift for the cyclists in your life. This will give you an idea of the type of things we’ll be creating:
Pre-register by emailing [email protected]. You can come for an hour, or stay all evening. Cost is $5 for EBC members and $10 for non-members, and covers as much re-purposed retroreflective material as you can use as well as other craft supplies. Imagine a basket decorated with retroreflective flowers, or a row of retroreflective magnets on a steel frame, handlebar, or fender. Or howabout a patch on your jacket, skirt or pants that can be seen a mile away? Only your imagination will limit how you use the high tech materials.
