Friday 8th June 12pm –  Decorating Studio & Walled Garden 


The walled garden here at the Emma Bridgewater Factory has been transformed into a bold and beautifully planed oasis in the city, rich in colour, scent and nectar and home to a brood of charming factory hens that delights factory customers thanks to the creative talents of gardener, florist and poultry-keeper, Arthur Parkinson.

Arthur will be in conversation with Emma about the changes he’s brought to the factory inspired by Emma’s designs and love of flowers, as well as  sharing insights from his descriptive and visually stunning first book “The Pottery Gardener” and will treat the audience to a guided tour of the small but breathtaking garden itself.
