a student on the textile course i teach on at nuca has won the historic wallpaper society competition i have been responsible for - Lauren Mellor whose wallpapers are inspired by the intricate Japanese technique of quilting, called, Sashiko. the 3-Dimensional qualities are emphasized through layering the cut paper so the patterns can be folded out to reveal a spectrum of colours, lifting the designs off the wall. this means that she has secured a 4 week paid work placement, at Zoffany worth over £1,400. so success.
meanwhile smocking is taking over my life!
