– Workshop Overview

A fantastic opportunity to create a number of unique ceramic buttons to your own design which you can use on your own special projects (an item of clothing, a cushion, bag, etc).  The class will be run by Margaret Glackin.

– What you need to bring

• An overall/apron

• Optional – Special pastry/cookie cutters to make button shapes (some will be available)

• Optional – special cloth remnants with raised shape (eg lace) or embossed stamps

• Ideas of button shapes/designs or a project you have in mind eg coat, cushion, bag

– What you need to know

No previous experience is necessary.

– What you’ll learn

On the day you’ll learn the techniques for making ceramic buttons from scratch, this includes clay preparation, cutting, texture and colour.

The cost includes glazing and kiln firing by Margaret and your buttons will be available for collection either from her North Leeds studio, Fabrication in Leeds City Centre, or (for an additional £3.50) via post (mainland UK, price will differ outside this area).

– What you’ll take home

You will receive your ceramic buttons after the event.
