Inspired by a visit to Gawthorpe Hall and the historical
textile equipment and tools exhibited learners undertook further researched to incorporate
ideas into their work.
Learners were given demonstrations of traditional
button making techniques to help them create their own dorset
buttons and using several textile techniques including applique, hand
embroidery, hair-pin, rag-rugging, shabori and bead making they created a final
textile piece centred around their chosen piece of historical equipment.
