Recently, the Incorporation of Weavers presented a cheque to the School of Fashion, Textiles and Jewellery to help support the College and Heriot Watt’s BA Textiles associate student programme. The programme has grown from humble beginnings as a four day introductory weave workshop.
Head of School, Jacqueline Farrell, said: “This is the third generous donation the School has received from the Incorporation. We could not have developed the programme so rapidly without the sponsorship and support of the Incorporation and ex-deacon Charlie Newlands".
The donation will be used to buy looms that will enable the College to increase the number of weave workshops it can run.
