Button Studio

Having completed her studies in the National College of Arts in 2007, ambitious, young Crafter, Jane Walsh opened up her own studio in her hometown of Athlone, Co, Westmeath. With a recession looming, Jane began making crafted items from odds and ends around the house rather than buying stock she could not afford. A blessing in disguise, Jane found her niche at the bottom of her Granny’s old sewing tin along with a creative flair that would underpin the foundations for what was to become a very successful craft business.

Since then Jane and her Button Studio have become renowned all over Ireland for the bright, colourful and quirky picture frames and accessories, all inspired by the humble button.
