Dorset Button Making – 12th July


tjfrogLearn & hear about the traditional craft of Dorset Buttons.  You’ll make Dorset Buttons using brass hollow rings and yarn, starting with the Crosswheel design and using the four techniques of casting, slicking, laying and rounding.  Dorset Buttons can be used to give that personal finishing touch to a knitted, crocheted or fabric project, update and revitalise an old garment, or adorn a bag, hat, or cushion.  It’s a great way to use up all those odd ends of yarn to make something quite beautiful.  With the basic technique mastered there are endless designs and possibilities of how to use them!
