Buttons have been used for centuries as a special accent on a piece of clothing, just think of the silver buttons from Zeeland, which are worn as jewelry.


Handmade buttons from fabric, ribbon, beads and embroidery threads can be made around a simple ring or a fabric button. You can make them as simple or elaborate as you want, you can literally build on them!


In this workshop you will make 2 craft buttons of your choice. Monique brings several examples and lots of materials such as ribbons and straps, beads and embroidery threads, so that you can customize your buttons completely to your own taste. She teaches you how to make a knot with beautiful materials, a simple ring, and needle and thread.


Monique van Munster has been studying handicraft techniques for more than thirty-five years and is now a specialist in embroidery. She is fascinated by the infinite possibilities of needle and thread. She wants to know how something is made, she investigates many techniques and applications. The research does not focus on being able to reproduce historical and traditional embroideries, but serves more as inspiration and interpretation. Monique attaches great importance to preserving her craft and wants to share her skills with others, so she teaches in her own studio in Tilburg, and wherever she is invited to share her knowledge, such as now at the Ambacht in Beeld Festival.
