If you haven't visited us yet, please do. It's packed full of loads of brilliant Shropshire-based artists and artisans such as Lyn Evans (torn paper collage artists) Lisa Fox of Fox & Boo (illustrator), Sandra Owen (glassware), Tilly Tea Dance - Textile Artist & Tutor (textile art), Sue Chadwick (silver jewellery), Emma Lawrence (illustrator), Lesley Palmer (water-colours and pastels) and A J May (chalk and ink art). All of them are amazing.
Have a great week
Well, it's been a very productive month for Manor House Designs; I've been a busy-bee in my workshop designing and making new pieces ready for autumn, winter and (dare I say it) Christmas, as well as doing my shifts at Anne Reeve's jeweller's with a wealth of local designers. And now, I can also announce some really exciting news, in conjunction with the Royal British Legion's Poppy Appeal.
Manor House Designs are taking a "Pop-Up" shop in Telford Town Centre from the 1st October to 31st December 2017 and one of the large display windows will feature a Remembrance Day display with a donation area and poppy silverware sales in-store."
The Royal British Legion is a fantastic charity which provides lifelong support for the Armed Forces community whether serving men and women, veterans, and their families for the future, as well as ensuring a lasting memory to those who have fallen.
Therefore, for Remembrance Sunday and all of the important events and appeals which the Royal British Legion run across the year, I wanted to create a strong symbol of remembrance in silver which can be worn on any occasion across the year.. These sterling silver poppies will be available soon via Manor House Designs and in the Royal British Legion's Poppy Shop.
Thank you and best wishes
