Textiles competition winner Yvonne Blackmore

We're delighted to announce that Build student Yvonne Blackmore has won a competition to have her work exhibited in our Student Centre in September. Yvonne entered the completion in April which asked for students working in the medium of textiles, to create a piece of work on the theme ‘Digital Language’. Yvonne’s origianl initial idea, ambition and technical skill led her to design a well resolved piece, which she went on to execute to a highly impressive standard. Yvonne wins £200 of Build vouchers and £50 of vouchers for an art shop. Sylvia Whitehouse was awarded runner up and wins £100 in Build vouchers and £50 for an art shop.
