Workshops

A great way to learn what to do with those odd ends of yarns to add a personal
finishing touch to embellish your projects, revitalise an old garment or adorn a bag, hat or cushion.

 ‘Thank you for the course last night, great fun & now addicted!  I had to make another one this morning in between cooking breakfasts at my B&B!’   Alison West

‘A very big thank you from us all for such an interesting evening last night.  Everyone really enjoyed it . . . I think you can pat yourself on the back for having really inspired us.  I have a feeling buttons will feature strongly in some of the work people will be doing!’   Lizzie Bird, Secretary, Lochalsh SWI

As a qualified teacher, trainer, workshop facilitator & coach, with over 20 years experience delivering workshops in people development, I love to get out on the road & use these skills to transfer my knowledge of & promote, the traditional craft of Dorset Buttony.

Dorset Button Workshops focus on learning the history of Dorset Buttony & the most famous Crosswheel design, using the four techniques of casting, slicking, laying & rounding.  Longer workshops explore further designs with the opportunity to make a brooch or bracelet.
