Jeweller Joanne launches study bid

AN ANNANDALE jeweller has launched a campaign appealing for support towards a coveted college course.

ART APPEAL . . . jeweller Joanne Garner has launched a crowd funding appeal to assist with fees at the prestigious Royal College of Art in London

Joanne Garner, who is originally from Brydekirk and now lives in Edinburgh, has been accepted to study a masters in jewellery and metal at the Royal College of Art (RCA) in London.
And the former Annan Academy pupil, who graduated from Duncan of Jordanstone College of Art and Design in Dundee, is looking for help to pay the annual£6500 fees for the two-year course.
Alongside sales of her jewellery and working a part-time job, Joanne has launched a
crowd funding campaign with rewards ranging from £3 to £1000.
She said: “The support has been amazing so far. It’s great that so many people are willing to help and really want to see me succeed.
“There is no government support for Scottish students who want to study an MA course and so getting myself to London in September will be no easy task.”
Anyone wishing to check out the rewards and donate to the campaign can do so at www.
