Inspired by our wonderful museum collections and the exhibitions currently on show in the heritage gallery, try your hand at something new in our fun and friendly adult craft workshops.

Ever fancied making your own fabric covered buttons or button brooches? Well this is your lucky day because the Ink Buddies are back!

In their next exciting workshop artists Karen Vine and Trish Cartner will show you how to carve and handprint your very own sample of fabric and turn it into beautiful buttons. A few stitches later and voila, you’ve made yourself a gorgeous handmade button brooch to brighten up your outfit.

Spaces are limited and booking is essential.

Cost: £10
