We had so many amazing applications for our sponsorship application and that coupled with our studio move it' s taken us a little more time than planned to get all the details out of those we want to announce the winners, and yes we have a few more things than just the £300 sponsorship!
As has already been announced the main winner of our £300 sponsorship is Sarah and Ruth of Folded Forest who's work is beautiful, their sample tested variations on vibrancy in their colour palette, making us confident that we can represent their designs to the high standard we wish to work and their application was honest and lovely. We can’t wait to work with these two ladies, who will be using their sponsorship of help produce larger work for an exhibition that they otherwise wouldn’t be able to produce within the limitations of their current screen printing abilities.
However, they're not the only winners, because of the high standard of applications and designs we are delighted to (eventually) announce just a few additional awards.
We'd like to award 20% discount for the next 2 months to these four lovely designers.
Coral Fowley - For her beautiful embroider work onto digital prints. We're really keen to see where Coral takes her work.
