NI Jeweller recognised by Future Makers Fund
27 January 2021
Design & Crafts Council Ireland (DCCI) announced last week the 28 students and emerging designers and craftspeople who have received awards and supports totalling €25,000 through the organisation’s Future Makers programme.
The announcement took place at a virtual awards ceremony on Wednesday, 2nd December, which was led by Toby Scott, design strategist and DCCI Board Member.
We’re delighted to see local jeweller Egle Banyte awarded Studio Support for the precision of her intricate jewellery. The judges remarked that ‘the costs of working with precious materials is a stumbling block that this award will go some way to allowing her to fulfil her ambition.’
