‘Student Textiles Artist’ is an annual national competition aimed at promoting the excellent textile work being produced in schools throughout the United Kingdom. We are extremely pleased to announce that Sarah A has been awarded 1st place in the competition’s GCSE category! There were over 220 entries to the competition and the five industry judges were very excited to see all the creative work being done in schools. Students were also required to discuss the origins of each sample and the developmental process they went through in order to create their final pieces.
Sarah has won a personalised trophy plus a £50 voucher and goody bag from Specialist Crafts. The school also receives a place on one of the prestigious Textiles Skills Centres teacher courses; a huge thank you and well done to Sarah!
