In this class you will learn the correct way to print, draw, reduce and coat shrink plastic, and leave with the skills necessary to create high quality badges on a whim – great for gifts, special occasions or even when you decide you suddenly have a new favourite band and want everyone in the world to know it
Shrink plastic veteran Maddy Young will provide drawing reference for creating your own set of cosmic badass badges (including customisable knives, skulls and botanical bunches) or make a set of badges that walks to the beat of your own unique heart, its completely up to you!
Embrace that inner child and do you mum proud – show her you have moved beyond shrinking chip packets in the oven to a fully fledged plastic master!
