Maker Maker: DIY Buttons with Melissa Morris

September 20, 2017

We’re kicking off our fall MAKER MAKER workshop series with DIY Button Making with Sackville designer Melissa Morris.

Melissa is a freelance designer and one half of Bay Town Creative, a graphic design, illustration and “custom things” agency, which she founded with her partner Mitch Morris. An extension of Melissa’s graphic design work is a handmade practice that includes densely embroidered patches and darkly whimsical felt sculpture.

At this workshop, participants will create their own custom buttons using a whole range of materials from thrift store comics and fabric scraps to pressed flowers and hand drawn elements. Seal your miniature artwork in a button that you can wear home.

MAKER MAKER is a monthly program of seriously small after-hours art workshops. Led by diverse Maker Mentors, each workshop introduces a pocket-sized art project that can be made in two hours or less. Designed for accomplished and aspiring makers alike, MAKER MAKER is for anyone interested in making small things by hand with friends and fellow makers. This informal workshop series explores how working small can be practical, portable and playful, economical, sharable and even wearable.

MAKER MAKER is free and all materials are provided, no registration required.
