This is a wall hanging in the style of a Dorset Button. These buttons formed a cottage industry in Dorset for over 300 years until button-making technology took over. When scaled up it becomes a form of circular weaving. This hanging is made using my Shropshire Wool. It forms a cheerful and colourful decoration for any living space.
The hanging itself is 15cm in diameter. The total length when hung is approx. 30cm. The hanging cord is braided and incorporates a circle of shell found on the beach.
