Button Necklaces Workshop - NSW Seniors Festival

Upcycle buttons into a beautiful necklace for seniors



2 hours Class size 8 to 16     label Free ($50 per class surcharge applies for private classes)

This workshop is free for seniors, thanks to co-funding by a NSW Seniors Festival Grant provided by the Department of Communities and Justice.

Buttons date back to 5000 years ago when they served as ornaments rather than fasteners. So let's pay tribute and put them on full display and make them a statement accessory in this fun Sydney workshop!

In this two-hour workshop, Deanne Barnes will take you through how to make a beautiful necklace from a selection of neutral coloured buttons. Deanne makes it look simple, but there's actually quite a lot that goes into selecting the colours and sizes to make it look effortless. There are also a few secrets to threading it just right, especially when you're aiming for the double layers.

We will supply neutral coloured buttons, however, if you have statement buttons that you've been collecting or have your grandma's button box to raid, please feel free to bring them along.

You will leave with a 'new to you' necklace that's cute as a button! At the end of the workshop, you are welcome to join a tour of the Reverse Garbage warehouse.

The teacher was great - gave clear instructions, was very patient and had a good sense of humour. I came away with a wearable necklace and the knowledge to make more.

Dianne is a patient and supporting facilitator. Her class today, 23 April 2021, was enjoyable.

Diana Whitton Apr 2021


A very well planned course, clear instructions and great resources to use. Easy to follow the information given and the way to undertake making a necklace. Thank you very enjoyable and worthwhile activity.

Susan Whibley Apr 2021


I enjoyed this class so much. It's been a while since I did anything creative and I love the necklace I made with Deanne's patient help and great tips. The small size of the class meant we all received help when we needed it. Using some of my Mother's buttons after her passing last year was most special as I will wear my necklace with her love close to my heart. Thank you Deanne.
