Who can take part?
The Button Project is open to artists, designers, makers and craftspeople. All buttons received by the date below will be exhibited.
A highly engaging display for press and public alike
The Buttons will make a stunning display. We already have promises of over 100, ranging from fabric and thread, plastics and wood, precious metals and glass. The collective display will be to die for, and the individual buttons highly collectible. Not to mention an engaging story for press and public alike.
Want to make more?
You may submit ONE button only for the display. However, depending on your technique, some of you may find that it is more economical to make a set. You may submit up to three additional buttons as a set, to be sold separately. The price of each of these buttons must be the same as your single display button.
