The Essence of Ginger and Pickles

When the owners of Ginger and Pickles Tearooms, based in Nantwich and Tarporley, set a live brief for Year 10 Textile students to design and create decorative embellished tea towels to be exhibited and sold in their tearooms, the students took up the challenge with customary verve and creativity.

The brief asked that the tea towel capture the essence of the tearooms, mirror its style and interiors and be appealing for its market audience.

All thirteen students created an exciting, unique, professional and attractive end product which showcased incredible skills in embroidery, digital print and pattern design.

“All the designs received such high praise from so many customers, who were in awe of the incredible talent and the professionalism of each outcome - It took everyone a lot of deliberation as the standard was so high. All students created something so special, so skilled and so personal it made the decision incredibly hard”, said Beverley Ozard owner of Ginger and Pickles.

The ‘Best in Show’ Tea towel was eventually awarded to Rebecca Walker for her beautiful and intricate design, featuring the three iconic Burleigh cup designs. Rebecca received an Afternoon Tea for herself and her family as part of her award and is looking forward to indulging in Ginger and Pickles’ delicious cake!
