Win tickets to Wedgwood’s 260th-anniversary show garden at RHS Chatsworth Flower Show and a special Wedgwood experience day out…
Wedgwood is delighted to be marking its 260thanniversary in 2019 by presenting a beautiful show garden at RHS Chatsworth Flower Show (5-9 June). The Wedgwood Garden at Chatsworth, designed by horticulturalist and RHS Ambassador, Jamie Butterworth, has been inspired by RHS founder John Wedgwood’s vision of using the power of horticulture and plants to connect people and unite communities.
Jamie has drawn inspiration from John Wedgwood’s personal garden and handpicked many plants from his original plant journal, such as sweet peas, roses, herbs and fruit trees. With a colour palette of lush greens and deep crimson, it also features a rich sky blue that references Wedgwood’s iconic Jasperware. The garden design will be simple and scaled back to bring the planting to the fore, which echoes John Wedgwood’s own sentiments when creating his garden which was once described as ‘a homely and loveable space’.
Visitors to RHS Chatsworth will get the opportunity to experience complimentary tea tastings in Wedgwood’s exquisite Tea Conservatory and watch demonstrations of how the prized pots are made. Wedgwood, the iconic premium lifestyle brand, was founded in 1759 by Josiah Wedgwood, not only an astonishing craftsman and potter but also an exceptional pioneer, philanthropist and marketer. With its rich heritage of 260 years, Wedgwood has become a true British design icon and is a testament to British entrepreneurial spirit and craftsmanship.
Discover the history and heritage of Wedgwood and the role Josiah Wedgwood and his successors have played in the development of the ceramics industry and evolution of British design in the Wedgwood factory tour and fascinating Wedgwood museum. The Wedgwood Experience Day Gift Voucher includes coffee and shortbread on arrival at The World of Wedgwood visitor centre in Staffordshire. You’ll be able to get creative designing your own plate in the decorating studio as well as throwing a pot. Afterwards enjoy afternoon tea in the Wedgwood Tea Conservatory and pop along to the Wedgwood Flagship Store to shop for your favorites pieces from the latest collections.
