Ceramic Button and Brooch Making with Margaret Glackin


Saturday 25th September | 10.30 – 12.30 | Workshop Theatre 2

A fantastic opportunity to create unique ceramic buttons or brooches to your own design which you can use on your own special projects (an item of clothing, a shawl, cushion, bag, etc)

On the day you’ll learn the techniques for making ceramic buttons and brooches from scratch, this includes clay preparation, cutting, texture and colour. 

The cost includes glazing and kiln firing by Margaret after the workshop and your buttons will be available for collection either from her North Leeds (Roundhay) studio, Fabrication in Leeds City Centre, or (for an additional £3.50) via post (mainland UK, price will differ outside this area).

  • No previous experience is necessary.
  • All the equipment and materials will be provided.

Originally from Ireland Margaret Glackin is a Yorkshire based ceramic artist who studied studio ceramics in Leeds and Harrogate.  She is an experienced designer maker who specialises in handmade ceramics, using hand thrown, slab-built and sculptural techniques.  Her unique glazes are inspired by the natural colours of Yorkshire and the Antrim coast.

The utilitarian aspect of Margaret’s domestic ware is a means of engaging customers with practical items which are also pieces of art (e.g. Yarn Bowls, ceramic buttons, tableware) as well as challenging cheap imports and raising the profile of well-designed handmade ceramics.
