Welsh Slate Water Features were proud to be among the exhibitors at The Garden Show @ Stansted Park, held across the 4th, 5th and 6th of September 2020.
The Garden Show is the best place to find unique garden products from independent companies, talk to experts, see live demonstrations and generally have a fantastic day out with all things home and garden.
Our Display @ The Garden Show
We took two working garden water features to The Garden Show this year, a 900mm slate stack pyramid and a 4 hole water feature wine rack. Both pieces attracted attention throughout the show, the mixture of natural stone and flowing water drawing every passing visitor’s eyes!
We also had a number of garden boulders and feature ornaments for garden designs, all crafted from Welsh Slate and Portland Stone ethically quarried in the UK. Our new Welsh Slate Birdbaths proved really popular, selling out of all we took to the show.
We also featured our sister website’s interior slate products, with many Slate Wine Racks and Gin Ledges leaving the show to discover their new homes.

Creative willow weaving for schools, events, festivals and groups! Steve was a friendly fellow Northerner based near Kendal in the Lake District. His beautiful handmade willow designs caught our eye early on in the show and watching his live demonstrations of willow weaving proved to be super relaxing. His stall was adorned with magical hanging stars and hearts intertwined with colourful ribbon where he sat nestled amongst them.
