Student Prize Winner

Fiona Jenkins is a Student at the Metropolitian College in Glasgow and has won the Craftex and the Degree show prize.

Two students from Falmouth were included in the shortlist of twelve from universities across the UK, with Noreen reaching the final four.

In only its second year, the Bohle Glass Student of the Year Award attracted a huge increase in the number of entries this year from students of glass, crafts, arts and technology. The competition is judged by an independent panel of representatives from academia and industry.

Managing Director of Bohle, Gary Dean says the event is producing entries that are way beyond his expectations: "Skills in technical, art and craft glass working are at the core of what Bohle does and when we launched the Glass Student of the Year Award, we expected to see some nice entries but in such a short time, we have elicited skills and creativity that are world-class from British colleges."

This is the second year in a row that a student from Falmouth has reached the final stages of the competition.
