Friday 13th and Saturday 14th October, 10.30am-4.30pm

A year on from the launch of designconsort and ceramic enthusiasts are warmly invited to the Moorcroft Collectors’ Shop to discover the latest contemporary creations to emerge from this conceptual project. Lead Designer, Emma Bossons FRSA, has continued to forge this new brand – with a new way of thinking. designconsort is an independent entity from Moorcroft, which was established in 1897, and yet the team of creative designers behind the new brand come with a wealth of expertise from the renowned manufacturer. Emma said, ‘With designconsort I wanted to create something fresh and more contemporary, aimed at a different market to Moorcroft. The items are made with more of an interior angle, they’re crisp and clear yet use the same traditional skills to make them. Obviously, we have fantastic skills here at Moorcroft and so it made sense to keep those going. A few staff members were thinking along the same lines, and so creating this brand was a natural step for all of us.’

This event will provide opportunity to see some as-of-yet unreleased designs, some unusual trials and samples, and have your say in what’s to come.
