Basics Series - Making Dorset Buttons

Make a Dorset Button


$50.00 per person



About this experience

The Dorset Button is a specific type of button which was first made in the county of 
Dorset in the United Kingdom in the 17th century. They were originally made using
the trimmed horns of sheep, which were cut into thin discs, around which threads 
and old fabric were wound. It has now become a British heritage craft but is very 
much alive today using contemporary materials for a variety of uses. 

In this 2-hour workshop you will learn how to make the traditional Dorset ‘Cartwheel’ 
Button, which uses threads and the Dorset Singleton Button, which uses fabric.

The workshop fee includes all materials with extra to keep.
