Hand Embroidery students receive national recognition for creative designs

Two BA (Hons) Hand Embroidery for Fashion, Interiors, Textile Art students have attained national recognition in prestigious design competitions for their creative work. 

Jasmine Dawson, who is in the second year of her degree, which is taught at the Royal School of Needlework (RSN) at Hampton Court Palace, was awarded third prize in the regional London heat of the Society of Dyers and Colourists International Design Competition, while first-year student Anna Holmes received first prize in the Worshipful Company of Glovers of London.

Angie Wyman, Course Leader for BA(Hons) Hand Embroidery for Fashion, Interiors, Textile Art, said: “This is a fantastic achievement for our students to gain national recognition of their work at such an early stage in their studies. These successes also affirm the quality of the learning experience that we provide on the Degree Programme.”

Jasmine, who hopes to work within interior design and create bespoke textiles for interiors, impressed judges for the international competition, which focused on colour and its use within the design process.

This year’s brief for the Student Glove Design competition was to design fashion gloves with a symbolic message and Anna is set to be presented with her prize at a lunch at Plaisterers' Hall in London in July.
