Home Editor, Emily Dawes, and I spent the day with a group of our wonderful readers on our Woman’s Weekly button craft workshop at our headquarters.


Take a peek inside Woman's Weekly Craft WorkshopAfter meeting everyone over coffee and biscuits, we set about making our first project of the day – a framed button initial. Emily demonstrated how to draw round an initial template on white or black card then, using a glue gun and a choice of buttons ranging from brights to pastels to white, our initial were created.

We sat, we made, we chatted. What was so great to see was how different everyone’s initial looked.

In fact one of our readers preferred to draw her own cat image, which resulted in a brilliant cat picture.

We stopped for lunch in our on site restaurant and after looking at the amazing views over London from our terrace, we returned to make a vintage-style necklace and a button posy.

As we packed away our crafts everyone agreed it had been a fabulous day where everyone learnt new ways to craft.

We’d like to say a huge thank you to our readers for being such lovely company and for such an enjoyable day – it was an absolute pleasure to meet everyone.
