Dorset button is a style of craft-made button originating in the English county of Dorset.

We are so pleased to have the lovely Helen Holden as our special guest skill sharer, to guide you through the process of creating your own Dorset Button.  In 2017, the Heritage Crafts Association included button making as one of their list of endangered heritage crafts.  This will be a relaxed class, where you will learn to make the button and would be fabulous if you could pass on your new skill to others too.

  • During the session you will be guided through creating your own button.
  • Estimated around an hour to create you button, we have allowed plenty of time for you to be able to enjoy and finish your project.
  • Everything will be provided for you.
  • You will have materials to be able to create another button at home.
