Moorcroft Pottery Special Event : ‘Ashwood and the Moorcroft Legacy’
Thursday February 20th at 7pm
Come and join us for an evening in which Moorcroft Pottery and Ashwood Nurseries come together in a very unique way. This evening sees the official launch of a very special new Moorcroft design that has been inspired by one of Ashwood Nurseries’ speciality plants….rumour has it that it may be one of our beautiful hellebores, but as yet both the designer and the design itself are all under wraps.
In addition, nursery owner, John Massey VMH, will give an illustrated talk entitled ‘The World of Hellebores’ that explores the many aspects of the hellebore breeding programme carried out here on the nursery as well as taking the audience around the world to the places that John has visited and the fascinating people that he has met along the way. He will also highlight the very special relationship between Ashwood and Moorcroft Pottery, showcasing the Ashwood hellebores that have featured in several of Moorcroft’s designs as well as looking at other Ashwood plant designs and the story behind them. Even if you are not an avid gardener, you will not fail to be inspired by John’s fabulous images, his sense of humour and his love of Moorcroft.
All are welcome: Moorcroft collectors, fine art enthusiasts or anyone looking for a gift for a special person or occasion....there’s something for everyone. There will be plenty of time to browse in our beautiful gift shop and we feel sure that you will be impressed with our enchanting selection of Moorcroft Pottery.
The designer of this special piece as well as other representatives from Moorcroft will be our guests for the evening while our very friendly staff will be on hand to help and advise you and complimentary drinks and light refreshments will be served.
