Not only does our scholarship offer financial support, but the two successful applicants will also receive expert advice and online support for their businesses, via Abbey England’s social media channels.
Our 2020 winners Zoe Hurst and Natasha Kerimova have kept everyone updated with their progress through their monthly blog. It’s been wonderful to hear how both winners have coped through covid-19 and how they have adapted their ways of working and so much more.
“ I loved our collaboration. I spent my grant on quality Abbey England hand tools. This year I incorporated hand stitching techniques into my designs quite a lot, so the tools came about very handy. I want to note that my Abbey England blog proved to be very useful as well. It helped me to formulate some thoughts regarding the craft and artisanship which I previously had no time to focus on” said Natasha Kerimova.
We look forward to working with the successful applicants throughout 2021.
