Variety of Dorset Buttons. (Photo © by Alix Beech)

This Wednesday evening, Crafty Affairs are fortunate to have the company of Jen Best of Beaker Button based at the Weyhill Craft Centre in Andover.  Jen will be demonstrating how to make Dorset Buttons and to entice you a little, here is a photo showing just a few of the many varieties of Dorset Button that can be made.   If you would like to follow Jen’s demonstration, she will be bringing little kits with her and it will take about an hour for her to teach us the basic button.   These beautiful buttons are made on a brass ring, using a variety of yarns and patterns to create different and unique effects and we hope that you will join us in having a go!  Jen is also running some workshops so do take a look at her website!

7.30pm at The Gill Nethercott Centre

No membership fee, just pay £1.50 at the door.

We look forward to seeing you!
