St Richard's Hospice Charity Scarf
Our competition winner
Congratualtions to Amy Gazeley for winning our charity scarf design competition. The collective judging panel from St. Richard’s Hospice and The Silk Bureau were impressed by the detail in her design.
Amy explained the concept of ‘hope and peace’ she intended the imagery to convey.
The snowdrop was of course key to the design. It was inspired by the poem by The Snowdrop – Consolation by Bishop Keble 1792-1886 and now appears in St. Richard’s Hospice logo.
“I am come to calm your fears: I am come to console you in the absence of bright days, and to reassure you of their return.”
The strong values within the image depict:
Sun – for light and hope.
Stars – for a journey and guidance.
Doves – for peace and hope.
Hearts – for love and care.
St. Richard’s felt that the symbols and colourways were a wonderful tribute to the ethos of their charity without being too obvious. We hope that you agree!
Amy has worked as a designer for some presitigous design houses including Marks and Spencer and Monsoon, as well as completing custom designs for clients. As a busy working Mum with a young family we were very impressed that she was able to design this charity scarf while caring for her children. She is currently developing her own brand of artwork for children. Little Prints Charming! And, of course they are charming. See them for yourself by visiting www.littleprintscharming.co.uk
We can’t wait to see what Amy chooses to print with her £500 worth of free digital fabric printing. But, we already sure it’s going to be special!
