Textile Student Wins National Competition
A Cornwallis Academy student proved she’s a cut above the rest in a national textile competition.
Phoebe Aldrich was crowned the winner of an annual contest launched by industry expert, Julie Boyd, after impressing judges with her creative entry.
The Year 9 student interpreted the theme, which was The Elements: Earth, Air, Fire and Water, by using coloured buttons and fabrics.
She added a finishing touch of a pocket filled with lavender.
Phoebe won an embellishment machine for the school, as well as a gift bag full of equipment for herself.
The competition attracted 250 entries, including several from other Cornwallis Academy students.
Textiles teacher, Gail Rawlins, said: “It is the first time that we have entered Julie's textiles competition and I am thrilled that Phoebe was judged to be the overall winner.
“The students and I are looking forward to getting creative with the embellishing machine that Phoebe has won for the school.”
