Honley Show


Design and Technology pupils at Salendine Nook have often enjoyed success at the Honley Show, and this year was no exception with two textiles pupils bringing home prizes. Lauren Berry won first prize in the “Piece of Textiles Design Work” category for ages 15-16 with her stunning vintage patchwork and Holly Riley won first prize in the “Finished Textile Garment” category for ages 15-16 for her 1960’s inspired festival dress. Both pupils received a rosette and a gift voucher.

Salendine Nook’s association with the Honley show has been maintained for many years now thanks to the hard work of Mrs Maynard, our colleague in Design and Technology. Each year Mrs Maynard takes a sample of the very best of our pupils’ GCSE work to be entered into the Handicrafts competition.    

The Honley show is an agricultural show where members of the public come from far and wide to participate. From agricultural equipment and farm animals to domestic pets, photography and artwork to food technology, there is so much to see. Exhibits and competitions cover dozens of categories and, of course, there are prizes to be won.

Beautifully decorated and assembled, you have to look closely to appreciate the care that has gone into such detailed hand embroidery; it could easily have been machine sewn.

With thanks to Linda Needham and the Honley Show Society.
