Lisa Clarke from Polka Dot Cottage is currently doing a fabulous 5 week button making workshop on her blog. Aimed at beginners with little knowledge of polymer and few clay-related supplies at their disposal, her classes will teach you to make all of the buttons pictured above, using nothing more than three blocks of polymer clay and a few inexpensive tools.
Lesson 1: Beginner Button Class – Making & Baking Your First Button

Lesson 2: Beginner Button Class – Striped Snail Shell Buttons

Lesson 3: Beginner Button Class – Asymmetrical Striped Buttons

The tutorials are clearly explained & well photographed, so much so, that you can’t fail to go wrong! Lisa also has a gallery set up, so you can show-off any of the buttons that you make. She still has 2 more workshop coming up, so don’t forget to subscribe to her feed – now I’m just off to find some polymer…
