Hand & Lock Prize


"Buy less. Choose well. Make it last. Quality not quantity. Everybody is buying far too many clothes." - Vivienne Westwood, 2013. It was with this thought that the brief for Hand & Lock's prestigious prize 2016, 'Objects of Desire/Artist Heirloom' was inspired. IMG_7844 Last week the competition was judged and a total of twelve prizes were given. While each winner and runner up received a selection of prizes - including A commemorative framed hand embroidered plaque produced by Hand & Lock's skilled craftsmen, Tickets to any Fashion & Textile Museum exhibition, A years subscription to Selvedge magazineA work placement and weekend course at Hand & Lock - winners of the The Wilcom Institutional Prize were awarded £6000 of embroidery software along with training and support. And winners of The Gold and Silver Wyre Drawer Award received £1000. [embed][/embed]   Emma Cassi (whose work is illustrated here) won the Textile Art Open category. Having been mentored by Polly Leonard, the Selvedge office couldn't help but be thrilled on her behalf.
