Lecturer shortlisted for major award

Talented Bearsden lecturer Anne Clare Graham was shortlisted for a pretigious jewellery award recently.

Ms Graham, who works as a senior lecturer in Jewellery at Glasgow Clyde College, travelled to The Creative and Cultural Skills Awards in Essex, where she was narrowly pipped to the top spot in the Jewellery Skills category by the renowned jeweller Goldsmiths of London.

A prestigious selection of judges decided to shortlist Anne – alongside well-known industry-leading jewellers Brian Hill and Peter Taylor of The Goldsmiths Company, London – in recognition of her commitment to passing on her skills and knowledge to college students and providing opportunities for them both at home and abroad.

Anne has worked at the college since 1991.
