Do you have a passion for teaching textiles?

The Textile Study Group, a UK-based teaching and exhibiting group are delighted to be able to offer a yearly bursary to anyone involved in the teaching of textiles and/or embroidery for personal development or for a project which will have a direct effect on their students and/or teaching. We particularly would like to encourage teachers that are at the start of their career to apply. The bursary will be for £500 and the application process closes on 30th November  2019.

The members of Textile Study Group would like to congratulate Bonnie Barton, Head of Design & Technology at Hazelgrove School, Yeovil, on successfully securing funding of £500 through the Textile Study Group Teachers Award.

This she intends to use on a school project. She plans to explore the possibility of introducing wearable electronics, smart and responsive materials to her students and give this way of working with textiles the ‘WOW’ factor’ .

Bonnie would like to encourage both boys and girls in this field and believes that pupils would benefit from those skills being developed early in their learning experiences.

We will be receiving Bonnie’s report and images by September of this year and will look forward to sharing these with you.
