As a recipient of the Helen Gregory memorial award bursary I had to give a presentation discussing what I had used the money for and the ways in which it’s benefited my practice.
I was given £400 for materials and equipment which has gone towards,
- Arc Welder: £140
- Several bags of coke for the forge
- Welding mask
- Work bench: £30
As well as these I purchased various other items however a majority of the bursary has been spent on materials. I am expecting the combined cost of steel used throughout the year and degree show to be around £100-£150.
The presentation was informal and short with a brief discussion on my current work and plans I have for the future. As I decided to talk in my studio space, there was clear evidence of how I’ve used the money and how much it has helped throughout the year.
