This workshop uses buttons and other embellishments such as rings, shells. beads etc to make a beautiful piece of raised embroidery work. You will be shown how to begin the piece and how to embroider and embellish it as you go, and it will form the basis of a piece that you can take home to finish.

Two pices of white or cream calico or similar material, not too thick, approx 12-15inches square

A selection of white and/or cream buttons, all shapes and sizes, any small shells, small plastic curtain rings etc.
