Mr Monkey looked at some work by Ophelia Buttons (Nico Dawson), who dips into a vast collection of buttons to make button-themed badges and necklaces. Then he studied useful and instructive samplers by Miso Funky (Claire Lennon Brown), which weren't quite like the Victorian samplers he'd seen in museums. The most useful sampler - Now wash your hands - turned out to be in the toilets.
You can read about the artists at the Manchester Craft Mafia website and the Miso Funky website.
