Button Necklaces Zero Waste Workshop

Upcycle buttons into a beautiful necklace



2.5 hours Class size 8 to 16     label $25 ($50 per class surcharge applies for private classes)


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 2.5 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!

Wonderful class with a great teacher Deanne. I had a great time and the supplies were more than adequate for our needs. I have booked for another class with her as I loved it and want to learn more.

Rachael Knight Feb 2021


This was a fun workshop taught be Deanne, whose expert instruction had everyone finish their own piece to wear or give as a gift. I loved it so much I've booked into the next button class which uses wire.

My mum and I enjoyed the button necklace making workshop very much. Deanne was a wonderful teacher and has a wonderful happy personality. The other ladies in the class were lovely too. We went home with a finished button necklace and we were very happy. We enjoyed a browse through reverse garbage after our workshop. Definitely booking another class with Deanne, thank you
