Dorset Button Workshop Report


Two groups of members thoroughly enjoyed their morning or afternoon Dorset button workshop on 22 November 2021. Jan showed them how to use a traditional button-making method to create a delightful Christmas-tree decoration: she made two herself, whilst showing the workshop attendees how to do one, which not everyone managed to finish in the time - practice makes perfect!! Several of them then listened to her talk on the history of Dorset buttons, via Zoom on November 29th. She is a very knowledgeable and engaging speaker.
