Double success for Glass students

Success for our students

Two of our Glassmaking students have recently been awarded for their high quality of work and knowledge in Glass.

Janine Greenberg won second prize at the Stevens Competition for Architectural Glass Design. Janine received £1,200 in prize giving and also two 10-week work placements as part of the Ashton Hill Awards. This is her second award in under a month.

Caroline O’Connor has been awarded a scholarship to attend the Corning Studio at the Corning Museum of Glass in summer 2018. She will have all expenses paid for as she travels to New York to continue her research and practice in glass techniques.

Last month both Caroline and Janine were shortlisted for the prestigious ‘Inspired by the V&A’ awards, where Janine won in the ‘Glass and Stained Glass’ category.

Both students study BTEC Certification in Art and Design Level 3 – Glass, taught at the Kensington Centre.

Huge congratulations to both Caroline and Janine.
