Traditional face masks interfere with lip reading and transmission of ASL facial grammar, disrupting communication for Deaf, DeafBlind, and hard of hearing individuals. The design was created by Kate Panzer In support of the Deaf-Hearing Communication Center (DHCC) Mask Program and is sponsored by the University of Michigan Medical School M0 Summer Impact Accelerator. See instructions and learn more here.


This kit includes supplies for sewing your own clear face mask:


  • Cotton fabric
  • Clear material
  • Head ties
