Purse Making Workshop: Slow Stitch & Embellishment
During this 2 hour Purse Making Workshop you will design and craft your own fabulous handmade piece.
During your time with us you will personalise your fabric and apply surface pattern design ideas through slow-stitch and by adding textured embellishments to your chosen fabric.
For this creative class, our design studio has created a heritage collection of lace inspired fabrics printed in on-trend colours and a series of fabrics that are a reproduction of our hand printed cyanotype blueprints.
The linear lace designs and cyanotype blueprints are inspired by our much loved Nottingham Lace Archive.
Our Archive includes highly detailed technical drawings, large scale vintage cyanotype blueprints, Nottingham lace punch cards and intricately made delicate laces and trims.
Our lace inspired designs have been digitally printed onto natural, high-quality cotton linen blend woven in the UK – a perfect fabric base for hand embroidery.
Debbie Bryan has a vast range of colourful embroidery threads, buttons and trims to choose from during your workshop and you will be provided with everything you need to create the best possible finished product.
To help you achieve your creative ambitions during your time with us, your workshop includes a take home hand embroidery how to guide and our inhouse creative team will provide you with instruction and support to complete your clasp purse.
Take inspiration from our beautiful Lace Market gallery interior and the collections that adorn our shelves and walls. Explore our curated boards on Pinterest @debbiebryanshop to view examples, ideas and inspiration for colour, texture and design.
