Cleve Room, Newton Abbot Racecourse


A three hour class covering different Dorset button patterns, with inspiration on what to do with them afterwards, dealing with common problems, materials to use and where to take your new found button addiction once you know how to make them!



Jen Best of Beaker Button has taught extensively, in a variety of textile disciplines including knitting, spinning, crochet, felting, stitching, weaving and button making. She is the author of six craft books on Dorset buttons, designs and makes her own button kits, and is completely addicted to wool. She will tell you she is allergic to boredom!
