Make two exquisite buttons using fine materials and various embroidery techniques. Learn and practice goldwork, bead and surface embroidery to embellish silk fabric which you will then use to make buttons. Each button is about 2cm in size which is ideal for a jacket, blazer, or coat. You can choose between two design options: two different buttons in black and gold or two different buttons in colour as shown on the images. The workshop is suitable for everyone interested in couture embellishing techniques. No embroidery experience is needed.
