Royal Worcester Ornamental Figurines and Vases,
1969 – 2007 by Master Potter, Roger Green
With over 40 years experience of specialising in Ornamental ware Roger Green is well qualified to take visitors through the process of figurine construction from design to completion. His role at Royal Worcester covered every aspect of production and he will talk about the many designers and characters he worked with and use real examples to show how the models were cut into pieces, blocked, cased and then propped for firing in the kiln.
Many different skills are required in the Ornamental Department and, with the use of his own quirky stories about the eccentric workforce and factory social scene, Roger will unravel a process that took seven months from design to completion.
We are also pleased to provide three different refreshment packages each of which is served on our very best Royal Worcester china, for more details click here. If you would like something a little different I should be pleased to talk to our caterers and obtain prices and fresh menus. We can for example provide tea and coffee on arrival, afternoon tea, soup and sandwiches or hot lunches!
In addition, the Museum Shop offers an ever changing range of present day, vintage and antique Royal Worcester ‘made in England’, at very reasonable prices.
Our favourite quote from Henry Sandon, who frequently features on the BBC Antiques Road Show, is that visiting the museum is his “Ideal Day Out!” and we very much hope that we can offer your party a day that equals his enjoyment!
This talk includes standard entry to the Museum and free coach parking. All talks must be pre-booked and are subject to availability.
