    1. Susan Langford is a real talent. She is a true
      Inspiration. She is not afraid to experiment with new materials and because of this she produces beautiful bespoke designs

  1. I think we need to encourage our young people so hence my vote. They all show great talent but #Elysia is at the beginning so I think would benefit more from a bursary

  2. Wendy’s work is amazing, so few do or have not heard of felting. It would be wonderful if she got the recognition for her talents, so that she can then show others how to do it. There are many wonderful crafters out there, but so few do this. It would be great to embrace new people and help teach them these unusual crafts and keep the skills alive by passing them on to others and younger generations. We need to stop any craft from dying out through lack of knowledge and teachers in these fields.

  3. I really like Wendy Dawson’s work and it is good to see that she has used her skills to create Mr Fox as this must have taken ages to do, but the quality is really good, Well done and I say this as we need to celebrate crafting and Crafters up and down the land of the UK.
