Home » Newsroom » Sascha Wins NADFAS Prize

A big congratulations to Holmes Chapel Comprehensive pupil Sascha Gilmour (and one of Chelford's finest!), who won first prize at the High Sheriff's Young Arts Competition at Oulton Park.

Sascha, sponsored by JoDFAS, Holmes Chapel Comprehensive School, won First Prize at the High Sheriff's Young Art Competiton at the Art in the Park event at Oulton Park on 14-16th November. Sascha, along with 5 other students from the Comprehensive School entered a piece of work in the exhibition.

Her winning piece was a landscape made from textiles. Sascha is hoping to study textile design at university next year. Sascha's award winning entry will be displayed at one of JODFAS' lectures this year.

All NADFAS Societies subscribe to the aims and objectives of the National Association: the advancement of arts education and appreciation and the preservation of our artistic heritage. The Decorative and Fine Arts include all aspects of the arts such as... paintings, sculpture, architecture, garden design, ceramics, costume design, mosaics, embroidery, glass, theatre design, furniture and stage sets... and much more, both old and modern. It is about learning, enjoying and understanding the world of art and you don't need to be an artist to do that.
