We Have Our Winners!

We are so excited to be able to announce – at last – the winners of our Creative Bursary Scheme October 2019.

Elysia Cusworth received the most amount of votes for her beautiful hand embroidered animals and is therefore our overall winner. She will receive a full bursary, funded by the School of Stitched Textiles to study Hand Embroidery starting in November.

Wendy Dawson and Sarah Caine received the second highest number of votes and have both secured a funded place on our accredited courses.

Wendy applied to study Felting Making by submitting her fabulous felted fox.
