About the Course

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 molds; 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.

Having mastered these skills, students will spend time making a range of their own buttons, experimenting with a wide range of techniques and methods before baking at least 30 - 40 assorted beauties to take home!

If booking with a CraftCourses voucher for part or all of the course fee, please fill in the contact form above or telephone us. Your voucher code must be provided at the point of booking.
