The Guild of Enamellers Student Bursary Scheme

The Guild of Enamellers

In 2009 the Guild of Enamellers celebrated it's 30th anniversary; it has established a flourishing membership and is a fine example of what can be achieved when like-minded people come together to promote their work and develop new ideas.

craft&design is proud to support the work of the Guild in co-sponsoring the Guild of Enamellers Student Bursary Scheme, which aims to help a young enameller as they start up in business and provides them with Guild Membership for one year, a place at the Guild's Annual Residential Weekend conference, and a comprehensive package of networking and development opportunities.

The Selectors for the Award said, "Josephine's application for the Bursary Award showed real depth of knowledge, a genuine passion for enamelling and an ability to use traditional enamelling techniques in an experimental, creative and contemporary way."

"So long, and thanks for all the fish"

After very many years of craft&design we've decided that we'd like to retire and so in 29 days we will close the craft&design website, including craft&design Online and the craft&design Selected Makers and Craft and Design Month websites. We've had a brilliant 35 years and would like to thank all our readers, advertisers, writers, contributors and website visitors for their support throughout that time. Our very best wishes to you all for the future - Angie and Paul.
