Description: Soft, handmade buttons made from linen thread and bits of cloth were made in Dorset, England, as early as the beginning of the seventeenth-century. Come learn about the history of these special buttons, how they were traditionally made, and how we can adapt these buttons for very modern uses. Starting with Blandford Cartwheels, you will learn to make several ring-style, thread-wound buttons. Bring a set of US#3 knitting needles if you would like to also learn a fantastic knitted button-hole technique to go with your handmade buttons.

Skill Level: All are welcome. No needlework skills necessary.

Homework: None

Tools Needed: All equipment and materials necessary will be supplied during the workshop.
