2022 is the 400th anniversary of the Dorset Button Industry! Join us as we celebrate this milestone. A Dorset button is a decorative button made from a metal ring and thread. Originally used to fasten clothing and now mainly used decoratively, they are fun and easy to make. During this workshop, you will learn to work three different designs. All materials supplied.
