Scholarship Winners

It is with great pleasure that we announce the winners of the Foundry full tuition scholarships for our 2012 Chiang Mai workshop.


The amount of entries was unprecedented, and the level of work we received was stunning- it was a very hard judging for our faculty & staff judges panel, but we feel like they did a smashing job of choosing emerging talent that would benefit from Foundry, from all over the world.
