Description

Dating back to the late sixteenth century, Dorset buttons are a great way to embellish your knitwear and functional too! We’ll start the class by making the traditional Blandford cartwheel to learn the basics before discussing some variations, including a fan-style button and the Maltese Cross. Catherine will show you how to include beads and will finish the class with a look at styles inspired by vintage buttons of the 1950s.
