NOTTINGHAM TRENT UNIVERSITY BURSARY
Last year, we embarked on a new Young Arts initiative. We set up a bursary for a third year Nottingham Trent University Visual Arts Student to assist the funding of materials for their final degree show to the extent of £500.
Every year, the University will advertise the opportunity for a third year to apply for a bursary. The recipient will be required to give a short presentation of their work The Arts Society Nottingham Committee in May – starting in May 2019. In return, there will be an opportunity for The Arts Society members to visit the final degree show.
In 2018, Lucy Bentley was offered the bursary. Lucy’s research is focussed on the methods and the principles of the Arts and Craft movement and in particular, the arsenical dyeing and printing of William Morris.
In 2019, there were two bursaries awarded. The first was to Ally Powell, a ceramacist who is developing ceramic lighting pieces for her final project and the second is Alice Peake, who is creating a range of heritage style textiles and furnishing accessories.
