Detail of Lou Baker's workThe Scholarships are to support students and tutors to undertake projects which further their own practice. Working with the Embroiderers' Guild during the Scholarship year will provide each Scholar with opportunities to be introduced to the Guild's network of members, branches and practising professionals. Plus the Education Scholar must be prepared, in association with the Embroiderers' Guild, to take an active role in the promotion of embroidery in schools.
