This exhibition brings together a selection of botanical watercolours by a range of artists working for the Derby China Works, during the 19th century. Duplicate and jewel-like, their plants and flowers appear as fresh and life-like as the day they were picked.
We’re being inspired by flowers this Half-Term week at Pickford’s House! Today, you can assemble your very own beautiful garden to take home. You will be able to fill your garden with colourful handmade flowers.
Our friendly staff at Pickford’s House are available to offer tours of the home for you throughout the week. However, these tours taking place each Wednesday are an extra special opportunity to experience the magic of Pickford’s House whilst being guided by one of our Visitor Service Assistants in traditional 18th Century costume.
Create a stunning flower using this simple artistic technique. You will be able to take your handmade creation home with you.
