Winners : Brooching the Subject Competition

Here is a video of Artist Sylvia Watt announcing the winners of the  handmade brooch, "Brooching the Subject"competition. Sylvia had the very difficult job of judging the competition.
 Before the announcement, I chose Olivia Parsonage's  wall brooch, "how do you get, how do you get to Parry Street?" as my favourite amongst the 120+ brooches in the exhibition, and purchased it. Now I am so happy I will be the owner of the first prize winning brooch, especially as there were many at the exhibition opening vying for Olivia's work. Olivia has long been one of my favourite artists and you can read other articles I have written about her here and here. 
Thank you also  to Sylvia for the generous mention of both my entries, "Silver Lines" and "Bees" amongst the commended.
This exhibition is only open at Timeless Textiles until Sunday 2pm, so hope you  are able to see these beautiful small works of art.
