Last weekend saw the Simon Clarke Silk Scarf competition : Porthmeor edition judged by a panel consisting of Victoria Sargent, designer at Beckford Silks; Barry Sinton, who ran the shop at Tate St Ives; and Sophie Chadwick, co-founder and print designer at Seasalt at the Porthmeor studios.
Students from the second and third years travelled down to the gallery to exhibit their entries, all worthy contestants, but in the end congratulations go to Megan Jones and Poppy Thaxter, whose scarves will be put into production by Beckford silks.
The exhibition runs until mid May in the Borlase Smart Room, Porthmeor Studios. Do pop in and check it out.
