HANNAH PREPARES TO SWAP MULL FOR MEXICO
A WOMAN from Mull will embark on a trip of a lifetime in September, when she spends a month studying in Mexico.
Hannah Jayne, 23, from Tobermory, won the F and A Bradshaw Award that is given to a graduate of the Duncan of Jordanstone College of Art and Design.
Hannah, who makes jewellery under the name Hanye Jewellery, was chosen after she submitted a proposal to study in Guadalajara for two weeks to work with a prestigious designer.
‘I still don’t know how they picked me,’ she said.
‘The course I’m attending is in the Hard To Find jewellery studio which is a new and contemporary studio that opened roughly five years ago in Guadalajara, Mexico. The course I’m doing is a jewellery illustration course which is taught by Barbara Brocchi, whose illustrations have featured in Vogue, Grazia and various other publications.’
The former Tobermory High School pupil added: ‘My proposal was to spend two weeks in Guadalajara, studying under Italian artist Barbara Brocchi and to explore the city. They awarded me a full £2,816 to do it.
‘I’m gobsmacked that I’ve been chosen. It was an absolute surprise. I’ve never travelled this far before and I’m excited to see and explore Mexico.
‘My goal is to come back to Mull and create a new collection of work inspired by my time in Guadalajara.’
Hannah is heading for Guadalajara.
