Wall Hangings Competition - 2014

Please scroll down the page to see the images and click on an individual image to find out a little more about it.

There were seventeen entries for the wall hanging competition which was judged by Clare Clensy. She found it extremely difficult with the great variety of techniques and interpretations of the subject. Each entry was examined in detail and anonymously. We are most grateful to her for her time and trouble.

All the entries were displayed at Spring Miniatura, and then in the MNS showcases at "A World in Miniature" exhibition at Houghton Hall, for 6 months.

1/24th scale winners:   1st Prize:   Rosalie Walby    2nd Prize:  Polly Collison

Other entries:   1/12th scale:  Rhoda Adamson, Debra Kirby, Glenys McKee, Jonquil Norrie, Michelle Weguelin, Pat Wootten, Ann Clark and Carolyn Postgate.
