Hand-beading and surrealism
Oliver received the David Bethel Bursary for his hand-beaded pieces, knitted using specialist yarn on a domestic knitting machine.

Kasia was given the Carr Doughty Bursary. She captured the board’s attention with her colourful collection, which combines surreal film inspiration with material innovation.

The bursaries are worth £2,500 and will help Oliver and Kasia develop their Degree Show collections.
