Feminists of Maastricht badge-making workshop

On 18 March 2024 I had the pleasure to host a badge-making workshop for the Feminists of Maastricht (FoM).

Badges were the first thing I made when I first started my business. My badge maker was the very first piece of equipment I bought and it was a second-hand find (what a score?!). Since then, I've used it to make countless badges of all kinds, in my studio, at markets, and now in a workshop!

During the workshop, we made badges with feminist messages, some by drawing with markers and others with collage from vintage comic book clippings and museum booklets.

It was amazing to see the funny, inspiring, and very cute badges all the participants made, each with their own unique take!

Feminists of Maastricht is a collective of local activists who promote and raise awareness of intersectional feminism on the political, economic and social level in Maastricht. Find out more about them and get involved with their great work here.
