SofST Excellence Awards 21 Skill Stage 3

Student Excellence Award
Skill Stage 3

The School of Stitched Textiles has instigated its own award scheme for students who have produced noteworthy work during their course. This may be in terms of general improvement seen throughout the course or just for an excellent piece. 

The students/graduates featured in this exhibition have been put forward by their individual tutor’s to recognise the way chosen students have gone above and beyond during their programme with us. 

 

Each student whose work is shown will receive a Certificate of Excellence in addition to their final City & Guilds accredited course certificate. The winner from each category will receive a subscription to Craft Magazine.
