Dorset Button Workshops

As well as specialising in the design and creation of hand knit accessories, I also design and make Dorset buttons which I use to create unique pieces of jewellery. In 2015 I took the plunge and ran my first workshop with the Creative Peninsula in Holywood, County Down.

I now run monthly workshops in The Craft Room, craft shop in Comber, as well as regularly throughout Northern Ireland in schools, museums and craft groups.

Participants are taken through the history of the Dorset button and how it can be used today for embellishment or as a piece of quirky jewellery!

I demonstrate how to make a simple cross wheel button and then guide the participants in the creation of their own brooch or necklace to be taken home. 

Upcoming workshop dates at The Craft Room:

Tuesday 17th September 2019 7.00-9.30pm

Monday 21st October 2019 7.00-9.30pm
