Fabric badge making

Take inspiration from Nostell's gardens to create your own fabric badge with textiles artist Amanda Woollard.

  • Booking essential

Start your session with a guided winter walk, where Nostell's outdoors team will introduce the history of the gardens and how we manage the landscape today. Taking inspiration from the shapes of the bare trees, peaceful lakeside views and wintry hues, you'll then head back to the Workshop. Amanda will guide you through the process of brooch making so you can create your own fabric masterpiece to take home. To check out some of Amanda's work, find her on Twitter @AmandaWoollard.
