Glasgow Kelvin students have yet again made their mark at this year’s Glasgow Trades House Craft-Ex competition.
The annual competition, organised and hosted by Glasgow Trades House, celebrates the best of creativity in the local college sector by exhibiting student work for three days in early June.
This year, Glasgow Kelvin students carried off ten awards, including the coveted Deacon Convener’s Design Prize. This went to a delighted Valentina Boneva, a jewellery student, for her exquisitely crafted jewellery box, influenced by the art nouveau of the Glasgow Style.
Valentina is pictured above with Mr Alastair Dorward, Deacon Convener of the Trades House of Glasgow. The Award is sponsored by Thomas Tunnock’s Ltd and Valentina wins a cheque and certificate.
Another of the awards went to the Fashion Design and Manufacture Team for their fabulous Radiant & Brighter wall hanging. The vibrant textile piece was created by the students in partnership with participants in the Radiant & Brighter project, an initiative supporting minority ethnic groups with the aim of tackling social barriers and cultural challenges in the community.
Pictured with Pheona and Michael Matovu of Radiant & Brighter are students Ineta Joksaite, Kayley Molloy and Jerome Kasusula.
Other Glasgow Kelvin winners on the day included Somayeh Iraji, Emmabel-Nour, Becky Hanlon, Dianne Chapman, Alison Copeland and Frank McAllister.
The College is grateful to Trades House for organising the prestigious exhibition and proud to be the home of such amazing talent - congratulations go to everyone involved in these achievements!
