Polymer clay is a fantastic material for making buttons. In its raw state, colours can be mixed to suit and shapes can be easily textured and moulded into a huge range of shapes and sizes. Once baked, it's machine washable and lightweight, so if you are a stitcher, carder, knitter or felter - or just enjoy learning a craft, this course is for you.

Your tutor, Jo, will explain and demonstrate how to make your own moulds; prepare and condition the clay; select and mix colours; shape and texture your buttons; make holes or add shanks and how to bake and finish your creations. Handouts summarising the day will be provided.

Students will spend the rest of the day making a range of their own buttons, experimenting with a wide range of techniques and methods before baking at least 2 dozen assorted beauties to take home!

What's included in the price?

All tools, equipment and unlimited tea and coffee are included. You will need to bring a packed lunch.
