Brilliant Buttons

Started the new year fantastically with Inspired by Klimt. Made me feel alive again to to be teaching and exchanging ideas with lovely enthusiastic students. sorting through my camera and cleaning out dodgy looking photos i can across some shots i took a month ago of Brilliant buttons workshop. We did a mixture of mixed media and stitched buttons, some painted some not. i have a button making machine but i think the nicest ones are the painted self covering buttons, the blanks you can get in any haberdashery shop.
This is a collection of my experiments with button and badge making machines

Jenny and Penny's mixed media buttons.

i would like to experiment more with button making but time gets in the way!!!
