Buttons, Brooches and Badges Workshop

Learn wiring techniques to create beautiful button pieces



2 hours Class size 8 to 16     label $30 ($50 per class surcharge applies for private classes)

In this two-hour workshop, our 'button whisperer' Deanne Barnes will teach you the wiring techniques that allow you to layer and construct decorative button jewellery.

Using wire as a base you will learn how to layer buttons and create your own statement accessory brooch and necklace to take home.

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.

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.

Why not share the experience with your child? Children aged over 12 years are welcome to buy a ticket to accompany a paying adult.

Another great button class with Deanne. In this class, we were taught to use wire to thread the buttons to create a brooch and a necklace. So much fun. I'm starting to become a regular. See you next time?

The button jewellery making class I attended on February 21st was great. Deanne was a wonderful teacher and has a vast knowledge of her chosen craft. Unfortunately the hub had their weekly food markets running as well which made parking very difficult. Regards, Marda Skepper

Another amazing class with Deanne!
We laughed all the way through it and I could’ve stayed for another hour learning all her tips and tricks. Thank you so much Deanne for your incredibly great laugh and your joy at teaching what you love to do
