Our workshops are fun and informal. We have children from many schools in the area including Richmond, Twickenham, Thames Ditton, Esher, Isleworth and Teddington. We are always surprised how often children have known each other from other clubs but even if they know nobody at all, they soon will.
Betty Buttons create our own designs for our workshops and we encourage the children to make little changes here and there, giving them confidence to make their own choices. Sewing is particularly good for developing fine motor skills and promotes concentration and relaxation. We also like to display the children’s work on our gallery pages, please take a look.
We cover different techniques in our workshops and sometimes offer specialised workshops, such as the embroidery course and skirt making course. Ann-Marie has a City & Guilds in Embroidery and is an avid cross stitcher, Stella is trained to A-level tailoring and dressmaking, so we are qualified as well as experienced.
Update: May 2016
Due to busy lifestyle and the children’s hectic schedules, both ours and our stitchers, we will now be running workshops within the holiday periods exclusively for our mailing list network. If you are on the contact list we will send you details of new workshops and special offers. Please email BettyButtons if you would like to go on the mailing list: firstname.lastname@example.org
Next Workshops are 31st May – Royal Bunting and Union Jack Cushions
