Heritage sites galore...

In keeping with our love of all things that relate to local heritage, we've been able to link up with local heritage sites and place exclusive collections at Nottingham Castle, Wollaton Park and Rufford Country Park.  So you can now pop along to any of these for a fantastic day out come rain or shine whilst also discovering special work from Debbie and other designers inspired by the historic locations.

See Corrina Rothwell's quirky illustrations (middle) at Nottingham Castle... or find Laurie Woodruff's lively drawings (bottom) of vintage lace machinery at Wollaton Park... or choose your favourite brooch at Rufford Park from Debbie's collection, designed with images of Rufford Abbey (top) and their famous bluebells encapsulated in the resin...

Living in Silk

We highly recommend you visit Nottingham Castle for this exhibition.  Travel through 5000 years of Chinese silk beginning with some of the earliest surviving fragments of silk cloth in the world, before continuing with sumptuous garments and accessories from the Qing and other dynasties.  Learn how silk has been produced for millennia and discover the rich colour, symbolism and exquisite craftsmanship of Chinese silk.  That's all before making that compulsory trip to the gift shop to pick up a souvenir... Perhaps we can tempt you with something from the Debbie Bryan Heritage collection in the glass cabinets???
