This workshop is aimed at adults and will focus on the kinds of historical, economic, and social information that can be revealed through the careful study of buttons. These innocuous fastenings might tell you more than you realize! We will look at patterns in the manufacture, use, and style of buttons and even consider some conservation challenges presented by the collection of buttons in the museums’ collections. This program is free and open to the public.
