Dorset Button Making Workshop
Dorset and particularly the area around Shaftesbury was one of the first places in Britain to develop a specialised button industry. Dorset buttons preceded industrialised mechanisms for button making and were at their peak of manufacture between 1622 and 1850. Julie Meyer facilitates a two day workshop during the Inspired by the Rajah exhibition for participants who would like to learn about this heritage craft.
