NEW February 20th | Zero Waste Workshop: Eco Dyeing & Embellishment @ Ruddington Village


In response to our improved sustainability commitment here at Debbie Bryan, this zero waste workshop is inspired by our developing climate.

With an introduction to natural dyeing, benefit from our textile expertise from our in-house creative team as you learn about our zero waste processes. You’ll get to choose your base fabric from our haberdashery archive of French and Irish linens, hand embroidered and delicate cottons. Team your chosen fabric with our vintage buttons, beautiful laces, a rainbow of threads, yarns and an array of natural resources to create your one of a kind eco embellishment.

Use your adorned piece to add a conscious touch to your home interior or to your very own wardrobe.

Zero Waste Workshop: Eco Dyeing & Embellishment

A 3-hour class crafted to complement our awareness of the changing environment. Join us at our beautiful new premises at 15 High Street in the Museum Village of Ruddington.

We look forward to sharing our knowledge, our zero waste processes and natural heritage dye techniques with you. You can then continue to develop and build upon your newfound skills to fulfil your own sustainability goals.

The workshop will begin with choosing your 30cm x 23cm* base fabric and your textile bundle from our selection of ideas and compositions. Although all your materials will be provided for your workshop, we do invite you to bring your textile treasures and your own much loved pieces to include in your design to repurpose and bring back to life.

Before benefit from our in-house textile expertise with demonstrations of slow-stitch and applique techniques and ideas.

You will create a unique final piece that can be displayed in your embroidery hoop, with the option to upgrade to purchase a British Made Oak picture hanger.
