At last the Degree Show is here, I have been working up to this for 3 years now, and I didn’t know what to expect. I am so proud of all the Contemporary Crafters, and it’s been a rough 3 years but we have gotten though it….somehow!
I was overwhelmed with the good feedback from people which I was getting from my work, so good in fact that I won two awards!!! Not one, but two!! I was so very shocked, surprised and you don’t get me speechless very often but I was.
I won the Royal Exchange Craft Shop Award, which is a group exhibition in the Royal Exchange Craft Shop in 2012, and the other award I won is the Smithy Studios Graduate Award, where the prize is a 3 months residency at the studios and 3 months showcase for my Graduate Collection in the Glossop Studios.
It’s all very exciting and I can’t wait to get stuck in. I am going start up an esty shop to sell my aprons and also up cycled work.
I would like to thank the judges, Catherine Carr and Rachael Noone, and everybody who have visited the Degree Show.
This post is in memory of the first milkman in my life, Len Harding.
