About Hannah Burr
I began making Dorset and Singleton Buttons many years ago and hugely enjoy exploring and learning about the historical patterns of this heritage craft, one which allows for continual creative freedom. Within my work I use plant dyed cotton threads and hand dyed woollen yarns. My natural colour choices and designs are strongly influenced by the flora and fauna of the Lake District, where I live and work. I incorporate local Herdwick and Swaledale fleece and yarns within my Button work, celebrating the raw materials found in a sheep farming community. On trips around the Solway coast I collect pieces of driftwood, which inspire me to create sustainable wall hangings, showcasing my Dorset Button designs.
