Make Your Own Badge

  • Workshop

Have you ever wanted to make a badge with your own design?

Here is your chance to use your own drawings and ideas to create a wearable piece of art to display on your clothes/bags or to give as a unique gift. 

Under artist Fiona Dowling’s guidance, you will create a number of designs based on your own ideas and then pick your favourites to turn into badges.

The materials used will be: paper backgrounds with different colours and textures, black fine line permanent markers, Posca white paint markers, colour markers. 

Fiona will bring her badge machine which will turn your drawings into badges.

Feel free to bring any additional materials that you like using when you draw.

Every participant will have the opportunity to create and bring home up to five of their very own badges.

Each workshop is 45-minutes long and can accommodate 12 children.

The workshop is free but places are limited so booking is essential. Book now by contacting Fiona on
