Workshop Description:  Their History & How To Make Them

Based on traditional needle-lace techniques, Dorset buttons have been created for hundreds of years, beginning in the 17th century as a cottage industry in southwest England. Today they are honored as a “Heritage Craft” in England and are made by fiber artists around the world. They are valued as colorful, whimsical creations for jewelry, as surface-design embellishments and as fasteners for handmade clothing. Come learn the history of these small treasures and view lots of inspirational photos along the way.  

Following the presentation, we spend time learning the fundamentals for making these buttons, part of the historic craft known as “buttony.” The variations are limitless and they can be created anywhere using only curtain rings, a tapestry needle and yarn (and beads if you choose). Further, you can customize these buttons to match your own creations, using yarns from your stash.

 

Materials/Handouts Fee: None

Attendee Limit: Unlimited
