Default 220v 3-way switch

I'm building a very large workshop at my home and plan to use 4 hi mounted 220v light fixtures. I want to contraol the lights from two seperate entrances, 3-way switch. I know how to wire for 120v but can it be done for 220v?

Yes, you only break one leg of the 220 and wire them like normal 3-ways. If you had lot of lights, you'd use a relay. For just your few, you break one leg
