**New Offer** Royal Worcester Ornamental Figurines and Vases, 1969 – 2007
Royal Worcester Ornamental Figurines and Vases, 1969 – 2007 by Master Potter, Roger Green. With over 40 years experience of specialising in Ornamental Ware Roger is well qualified to take visitors through the process of figurine construction from design to the conveyor belt. 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 and 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. This talk is for groups of 20+ and must be pre booked.
