New Designers 2016 at the Business Design Centre in London showcases the fresh-thinking and innovation of 3,000 brilliant individuals, providing an essential pipeline of new talent into the UK’s creative industries.  The Weavers’ Company presents an Associate Prize for the best weave graduate. A judging panel, chaired by Ms Angela Swan, viewed the work of all weave graduates and awarded this year's Weave Prize to Lydia Hiles (www.lydiahiles.com) from Manchester School of Art.   A grant was also made to Mariam Syed (www.artsthread.com/profile/mariamsyed/) from Glasgow School of Art to assist her in the purchase of a loom to support her work in producing prayer mats for Muslim children.
