Each year Madeira offers a sponsorship programme to UK university students studying in their final year of a BA Hons Embroidery or Embroidery related course. The Sponsorship allows students to choose a selection of Madeira threads and accessories. Sponsored Students may also be invited to display their work at exhibitions or on Madeira’s social media platforms.
N.B. 2021/22 sponsorship has now closed
Students will be advised if sponsorship has been granted by the beginning of December
From successful candidates we require acknowledgement of the Madeira Sponsorship by displaying a provided Madeira sign when any work is on public display. At the end of the final year, we also request a short report which should include how their objectives were reached, and achievements and details of any work placements. A few photographs of their work would be appreciated and may be used in Madeira’s literature or social media.
If you have any questions about the sponsorship program, please contact: firstname.lastname@example.org
Many previous Madeira Sponsored Students are running very successful businesses, or have gained excellent employment in prestigious fashion or textile related companies and we feel very honoured to have been involved in assisting the students’ development.
