It is of course the SELECT Festival! sorry to have got the name wrong, i am obviously living in the past and thinking of a previous event… We have now received the actual citation for our award…
Studio21 is the winner of the prestigious Hartlebury Award 2016 presented annually during the Select Festival
The person who was judging said that he thought our work was innovative and inspiring, we were very welcoming and that the work pushed the boundaries of textile art.
And the official statement reads
‘The Sewing Machine Project’ showed an eclectic mix of work from wrapped up deconstructed sewing machines, fascinating insights into the piece work machinists, to beautifully machined fabrics. The pictures of men milling the sewing machine and the women at work using them provided a historic background to the work, together with the professionally produced and informative booklet. It was an inspiring and professionally presented exhibition’
We’re now entitled to display the logo in all our communications. How fantastic is that!
