Ingestre Orangery

Project Outline.

Exploring Ingestre Orangery garden to create poems describing the spirit of the place through the act of tending the garden.

Staffordshire Poets Emily Rose Galvin, Dawn Jutton and Gary Carr, led by Mal Dewhirst provided guidance to poets who were invited to join them in capturing thoughts and poems.

This was followed up with a day working with artist Luke Perry entitled, The Tidings of Tempered Trowels on 28th May 2019. Luke stamped words and lines onto garden trowels, which are now displayed at the orangery.
