Students Win in National Textiles Competitions

Congratulations to First Year Degree Student Rebecca Offredi who has been awarded First Prize in The Worshipful Company of Glovers‘ student competition.  Students were tasked with choosing a heroine from past or present, real or fictional, and design a pair of gloves that expresses their character and spirit. Rebecca chose the courageous story of Malala Yousafzai – activist for opportunities for young women and the youngest Nobel Prize laureate.

Congratulations to two of our Second Year Degree Students, Lucy Hewett and Frankie Stone, who were both awarded Certificates of Commendation in the Bradford Textile Society Competition, Showcasing innovative approaches to textiles for fashion and interiors, Lucy was awarded for the category of LAPA Charitable Trust Award for Hand Embroidered Textile Design for Fashion and Interior Textile Design Products and Frankie was commended for The Clothworkers Foundation Award.

Sophia Malik, Senior Lecturer for the RSN Degree said: “I’m very pleased and proud that the students’ work has been recognised and commended. Being recognised by judges of this calibre at national competitions give the students huge confidence and an opportunity to receive positive external feedback from the creative industries which is invaluable. I am looking forward to seeing the students continued success.”
