Buttoned Up: Make Your Own Ceramic Buttons
Plastic buttons that fall off too easily really pushing your buttons? Time to take matters into your own hands and create and design your own durable stoneware ceramic buttons from wet clay. The perfect finishing touch to a handmade garment or a great way to personalize a beloved item, ceramic buttons are an easy introduction to working with clay to create functional items. Note, because the clay will need to be fired, this course has a very funky schedule: there will be two sessions from 9am-11am, with one full day off in-between, making it a great creative experience add-on to a North Shore weekend. Each student will create up to a dozen buttons that can be picked up on or after April 18, or can be shipped to their home. Spring Session: April 13 9am-11am and April 15 9am-11am. No course April 14. Summer Session: August 10 9am-11am and August 12 9am-11am. No course August 11.

All required tools/materials are provided by your instructor and North House and will be available once the course begins. Note, buttons can be picked up at North House starting April 18 or can be mailed for a small fee ($10), payable at the time of class.
