Dorset button making was a cottage craft in England in the 18th century.  Buttons were made with rings of sheep’s horn and wool or linen thread.  This class will make them with metal or plastic rings and a variety of fibers.  We will learn the basic Dorset Crosswheel pattern and some of its many
variations.  Beginner sewing skills and good eyesight or magnification are helpful.

Cost: $45 Includes admission to festival.  Plus $1 per button made (paid to instructor at workshop).
