Join Charles Gandy for an Introduction to Dorset and Heirloom buttons. Dating back as far as 1622 and popular up until around 1850, these hand-made buttons are making a comeback. You can use them to finish that special sweater or maybe as a shawl pin, a broach, some earrings, or whatever other creative ideas you might find. We will start with the Cartwheel button and, time permitting, explore other options. By the end of the day, hopefully you will be prepared to launch into a whole new journey of making fun and creative buttons.
