Studio spaces and shared tools will be disinfected prior to each session and alcohol wipes and gloves will be made available for participant use.

Learn to make your own unique buttons with polymer clay! You will take two handmade sets of buttons home with you.

In line with the Pause Exhibition in our Main Gallery presented by Art Aviso, we are running button theme workshops!

In this full-day class, you will learn two fundamental Polymer Clay techniques and how they can be used to create your own bespoke buttons. We will start by going over the basics of polymer clay, the basic tools you need, how to prepare it for the best results and how to create your own colours.

We will then work through creating our own Patterned Slabs, an ideal way to create buttons of different shapes and sizes for feature buttons!

While our first batch of buttons cure, we will learn to make a Simple Mini Canes, which is perfect for creating a set of matching buttons. We will create a clay block and learn to reduce it down, making it so you can have a graduated set of buttons or a set of identical buttons.

Finally, we will show you how to give your buttons a professional finish so they are ready to adorn your favourite jacket.

You will leave with at least two sets of bespoke buttons and the skills to continue working with polymer clay at home! A delicious lunch will be provided, created from all local organic produce and we are able to cater for any dietary requirements you may have. We also provide you with a divine afternoon treat and tea and coffee facilities are available throughout the course.

Please note
Sessions at The Old Auction House require a minimum of four participants to run. In the event that we do not have sufficient students we will cancel the class and contact you a minimum of 24 hrs prior to the session to organise a full refund or transfer to another date.
