Come join Charles Gandy for an Introduction to DORSET AND HEIRLOOM BUTTONS.
Dating back as far as 1622 and popular up until around 1850, these hand-made buttons are
making a come back. You can use them to finish that special sweater or maybe as a shawl pin, a broach, some earrings or whatever other creative ideas you might find. We will start with the “Cartwheel” button…and, time permitting, explore other options. By the end of the day, hopefully you will be prepared to launch into a whole new journey of making fun and creative BUTTONS. Bring keen eyes, tapestry needles, and scissors…we’ll have the rest!
This workshop is FREE with the purchase of Charles' book The Embelished Sock, or a $10 materials fee without a book purchase!
