Berisfords’ Design Competition


Congratulations to Year 11 student Ella McCafferty who has won the Berisfords’ Design Competition.

The competition involved designing and making a decorative collar, cape or jacket incorporating Berisfords ribbons.  All GCSE textiles students took part in the competition, which started with a visit to the Congleton-based company and a tour of the factory. The students were tasked with creating mood boards to demonstrate how they had developed their designs and creating their final design using Berisfords Ribbons.

Peter Bowers (Berisfords’ Managing Director) and Danielle Thomson (Creative Designer) visited Eaton Bank Academy to judge the students’ impressive and creative work.  The first place prize of £100 was presented to Ella McCafferty, second place (£70) to Maya Taylor and third place (£30) to Alice Kennerley.
