Come join us this Friday for an interactive Button Party where you can make your own one-of-a-kind buttons. Browse through provided books, magazines, and print materials to find your favourite images to make into wearable art. Make as many pieces as you want! It’s like a buffet but, instead of food, it’s all-you-can-button! You can put your new buttons on jackets, sweaters, backpacks, shoelaces, or even use them as cuff links. Buttoning is an awesome way to engage with the arts, and you get to take the fun home with you!

All materials will be provided, including scissors, circle cutters, markers/writing materials, paper and print materials. You’re also welcome to print off and bring anything you want to press into a button.
