Making a Button Mouse

20th July 2018 @ 10:00 am - 3:30 pm


With Lesley Evans

Friday 20th July 2018, 10am - 3.30pm

We will be making a little felt button mouse in this class. All the kit will be provided, so that you can take your little cutie home with you. Button hole stitch, stuffing, and making joints with buttons (and some alternatives) are all techniques you will learn, so that you can make bigger versions later on. He can be made safely suitable for a baby or small child, and would make a super gift for your best friend.


– £35 for this full day workshop, payable in advance.

– Free refreshments provided throughout the day, but bring or buy your own lunch.

– There will be a small cost of up to £5 for the required materials, payable to the tutor on the day of the class.

Please bring your sewing kit with you – scissors, needles, threader etc. There will also be supplies available to purchase on the day.

There will be a maximum cost of £5 for your kit – all of the materials you need, with a choice of colours, will be provided.

The class fee for a full-day workshop is £35. Class fees should be paid in advance by cash, cheque or preferably card (which can be done over the phone).

Cheques will be cashed two weeks before the date of the class, once we are sure the class will run, and should be made payable to Braintree & Bocking Community Association.

There may be an additional cost for appropriate materials, which if applicable, should be paid to the tutor on the day of the class – please check the class details.

Cancellation policy

Fees are non-refundable from two weeks before the class unless we can sell the space to another student (subject to a minimum of six students booked). Fees may be transferable at our discretion.

Please understand that the Centre cannot afford to run classes at a loss, since we are a charity. As such, classes may be cancelled if we are unable to achieve a minimum of 6 students. If this is the case, you will be informed two weeks before the date of the class and your fee will be refunded.
