Free Badge-Making workshops for Cruinniú na nÓg,
Saturday June 11th 2022

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

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 you will pick your favourites to turn them 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…

… and Fiona’s badge-machine!

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 5 of their very own badges.
