Winning the Award meant so much to me, not only did it provide me with vital funding but it gave me a real confidence boost. I have found a workshop, designed my website and taken a very large order. The publicity that was generated meant people heard about my work, my current commission found me through an article about the win. Winning the Award has made a massive difference to my future, I don't know whether I could have set up without it! I'd highly recommend it to everyone.
