Queer Craft Club: Badge Making

26th November 2019 @ 5:00 pm - 8:00 pm

Free – £9


This event will take place at The Yard Theatre, Hulme.

Queer Craft Club is a safe, encouraging, relaxed space to get together and make things. All abilities welcome, all just for the joy of doing things with your hands.

This month we’ll be making badges! These can be made with anything flat – drawing, photographs, collages, fabric. Badges will be 25mm and 58mm, feel free to bring along any images or materials you’d specifically like to use.

We’ll be providing some materials and tools for badge making, but you’re also welcome to bring along your own craft project you’re currently working on.

This is a sober space – come and chat or sit quietly, there’s no pressure to join in – please respect other’s identities and pronouns.

This event is for anyone who self-identifies under the LGBTQIA+ banner, and their friends. If you’re coming alone and are nervous, email vicky@nice-time.co.uk and we will arrange a buddy for you. If you have any accessibility needs we can help with also feel free to email us and we’ll do what we can!
