Lansdown Bench on BBC Gardeners’ World Friday 11th September

BBC Gardeners’ World were in Bath last week filming the Bath WI garden in Victoria Park as part of a WI Centenary feature. The WI community garden is in the beautiful Botantical Gardens in Royal Victoria Park, Bath. The garden is entirely made up of edible plants and flowers. Happily for us the garden also features an Ironart Lansdown bench. Our benches are all handmade here in our workshops in Larkhall, and this one was handpainted by Nichola Thearle in a subtle Union Jack design.

Pictured sitting on the bench here are BBC’s Rachel De Thame with Kitty, Head Gardener at Bath’s WI. You can catch the epsiode this on BBC iplayer from Friday 11th September at 8.30pm on BBC 2.

Garden tables for the Lansdown collection

We are often asked to supply tables to match our popular Lansdown slatted benches. We offer a range of wrought iron tables, but these are the two table designs that look great alongside the Lansdowns.

Our pretty upright Slatted Top Cafe Table has delicate scroll feet and collaring detail, it’s perfect for a cup of coffee or two in the sunshine.

Our Lansdown Table is a lower and larger design – ideal if you’re entertaining or really want to spread your newspaper out in the garden.

All Ironart garden furniture is galvanized before being painted in a range of pretty colours to offer maximum resistance to the elements (and minimal maintenance). Each piece is hand made to order here in our workshops in Larkhall by our skilled team of blacksmiths. With heartfelt thanks to two of our recent customers for sending these lovely photos of Ironart furniture in situ in their gardens.

 

 

Bath WI garden in Victoria Park, Bath

The local Bath WI group have a community garden in the beautiful Botantical Gardens in Royal Victoria Park, Bath. The garden is entirely made up of edible plants and flowers. Their concept was designed to inspire people to plant edibles that are not only useful, but beautiful as well. We’re delighted that they have chosen an Ironart Lansdown bench to grace their fantastic garden. The Bath WI had a summer garden party last week in the glorious sunshine – at which the bench was much admired and enjoyed. Our thanks to the ladies of the Bath WI for sending through these pics!

 

 

 

It’s furniture season!

As soon as Spring appears we always see a dramatic increase in demand for our hand made garden furniture and garden structures, and this year has been no different. The workshop is a hive of activity with the team jigging and forging bencheschairstablesarchesgazebos and garden braziers. If you’re looking for the best quality garden furniture that money can buy… look no further. We have a range of furniture styles and garden products available on our website – lead time varies but is usually 4-6 weeks on these pieces. All our products are galvanized to give them maximum protection against rust corrosion. Pics below show the team at work making a batch of Lansdown furniture for a client in Hertforshire.  If you have any questions about any of our products, or would like some advice about a bespoke item, please get in touch

We are in Gardens Illustrated this month…

WEB - Gardens Illustrated - June issue front cover WEB - Gardens Illustrated - June issue

We were very fortunate to be featured in Gardens Illustrated current issue (June 2013) in a piece of editorial entitled ‘9 of the best metal benches’.

The Lansdown bench featured is a ‘three seat’ bench – the same design is also available as a two seat bench and a single over-sized armchair.

Thank you to the team at Gardens Illustrated magazine for giving us the thumbs up – we really appreciate it!

James Cuthbertson – apprenticeship update

Ironart’s apprentice artist blacksmith James Cuthbertson has been putting his skills to the test alongside the rest of the team on our range of garden furniture this week. We’ve recently received a large order from America for our Lansdown garden benches so the workshop is full of jigs and component parts. He’s been working really hard, has started his apprentice course at Norton Radstock and is off to the National School of Blacksmithing at Hereford next week for the second block of his Design and Forgeworks qualification. James has been here for three months now, he’s slotted into the team seamlessly and is a great asset to the workshop.

Ironart on Alan Titchmarsh’s ‘Love Your Garden’

This week something very exciting happened at Ironart – we made our television debut!

Ironart was featured on Alan Titchmarsh’s LOVE YOUR GARDEN show at 8pm on ITV  last Friday (the 8th July).  CLICK HERE to view the clip on ITV Player

Alan Titchmarsh and his team did a feature on a fantasy garden and suggested arches, planting and sculpture to help viewers ‘get the look’. Our magical Asymmetric Flower Arch was featured, priced at £4,250. The clip is short, but we’re really pleased that they used it. Let us know if you spotted it!
