Abstract or description

The Spode Rose Garden is an urban green space development project which Anna Francis has been lead artist on since 2013 with AirSpace Gallery artist collaborators, Glen Stoker and Andrew Branscombe.

In 2016 the project achieved its goal of developing the disused garden, after funding from DCLG Pocket Parks enabled the full renovation of the garden. This included setting up a Friends of Spode Rose Garden Group, in order to secure the sustainability of this long term public art project.

In 2017, The newly formed Friends of Spode Rose Garden took this urban development project to a national audience by entering a design for RHS Tatton Flower Show, in the blooming border section. Group member Dawn Mayer designed the display, which was then developed and delivered by the group. The design was based on the Spode Heritage Blue Italian pattern, and won a silver gilt medal at RHS Tatton, before being installed in the Spode Rose Garden, later in 2017.
