I had the honour of meeting John Lowrie Morrison (Jolomo) last week at an awards ceremony organised by PSYBT. The afternoon comprised of  a lovely lunch followed by a round of interviews and then the big prize giving. It was a nervous wait for all but well worth it, delighted to have won! Second and third place respectively went to Lauren Crawford who lives in fife and designs handwoven textiles and Dundee based silversmith Geena Delaney.

The Jolomo PSYBT Awards were launched in March 2008 with the help of a
£10,000 donation from Jolomo to inspire more young people with arts and
crafts backgrounds living in North West Scotland and the Highlands and
Islands to set up their own businesses. This year the awards and the
prize money were extended to include eligible arts and crafts businesses
throughout the whole of Scotland.
