Dorset Button Making with Debbie McCann


Dorset Button making is considered a heritage craft and once mastered can be adapted to create everything from beautiful buttons to jewellery and decorative art.
In this workshop participants are taken through the history of the Dorset Button. Debbie will then demonstrate and guide participants in the creation of their own piece of jewellery or artwork to take home.
