Buttonology textile talk
Thursday 21st 7 – 9pm (2hours) £24
A talk with a ‘hands on’ twist, exploring their history whilst making a traditional stuffed fabric button and a Dorset button, made on a curtain ring with thread. Surprisingly not invented until the 14th c. delving into a bit of child exploitation as Dorset buttons were crucial in the evolution of working clothes and smocks.
