Few 17-year-olds can boast that their work has been included in an exhibit attached to the Victoria and Albert Museum, the world’s leading museum of art and design, but Ellie Scorer of Clapham can do just that.
The former Sharnbrook School student is now taking Graphics, Photography, Media and English Literature A Levels at The Bedford Sixth Form – and via her art class has won first prize in a competition which will see her design work all over London.
Via teacher Nikki Mansell, Ellie and classmates entered the challenge run by TRAID, a clothes recycling charity, to design a “wrap” for their bins across the capital.
“I couldn’t believe when my name was read out,”
“I can’t wait to see the finished item which is now going into production.”
Ellie beat entries from more than 13 schools across London. There are plans for her work to be unveiled at the V & A in the coming months.
Said teacher Nikki:
“We entered the Graphics Gathering competition which the V & A hosts every year. We are looking forward to seeing the finished article.”
