Two Major Awards: New Designers 2017

The images released from New Designers show two of our students with their awards.
It is so nice to see them wearing the aprons they made from their designs.
It was a great way to advertise their work to a greater audience

All our exhibiting students used their work to inspire designs for aprons.

They looked fantastic.

 

RHS Hampton Court 2017

We had the most wonderfully successful time at RHS Hampton Court Flower Show, July 2017……and the weather could not have been more glorious.
While we were showing work, painting and drawing, inside the marquee, Woodhouse and Law worked their magic outside in the three glasshouses
See their write up here

 

Working with and supplying beautiful props, and carefully selected garden adornments, the team skilfully arranged the student’s textile products inside the glasshouses to create three individual settings of great charm and appeal.

Thank you Woodhouse and Law for your commitment, enthusiasm and extensive knowledge; attributes that you are so willing to share.Thank you.

 

Here’s a LINK too to the marvellous glasshouses

Things are hotting up in the greenhouses

We’re showing work this year at RHS Hampton Court and we are so busy selecting the work to be hot housed in the glasshouses.

We are being helped in selection by Woodhouse and Law, alongside Lewis and Wood and Santander. All three are kindly sponsoring us

Each year will have their own glasshouse.
So that means three marvellous displays

On our main stand we will be showing drops of floral wallpaper and fabric lengths.
Designers will be in situ showing you the process of design through to finish.

Come and join us.

We look forward to welcoming you onto our stand.
