On 17 June, Central Saint Martins held its annual awards ceremony to congratulate the people who won or were highly commended for our scholarships.

The Cecil Collins Memorial Award
Cecil Collins was one of Central School’s great teachers, who taught painting and life drawing for over thirty years. He was himself a brilliant draftsman, and regarded drawing and particularly life drawing as a central activity in an art school. The inner content of a drawing was what concerned Cecil Collins. He believed that one drew what one knew, rather than just what one saw. He died in June 1989 and bequeathed a sum of money to provide a biennial drawing award. The award is open to any student studying at the college.

The Joyce Clissold Scholarship for Printed Textile Design
Joyce Clissold was a student of Rooke and Adeney at the Central School between 1924 and 1927. While still a student, Clissold worked at Footprints, a workshop established to design and to supply textiles for the Modern Textiles shop. Clissold returned to Footprints in 1927, taking it over in 1929 and creating all subsequent designs. Clissold taught textile design at the Central School from 1936 to 1940, and after the war continued to run Footprints on a smaller scale until her death in 1982. Central Saint Martins holds a substantial Clissold collection and the copyright of her designs. The scholarship is open to second-year BA Textile Design students.
