Gudrun’s Good Deed


Your chance to be awarded an artist grant!

Gudrun’s Good Deed is a project that we have been running since 2006. It involves donating part of the proceeds from the sale of selected products to organisations or causes close to Gudrun’s heart.

Gudrun’s Good Deed for this year, 2021, is supporting aspiring artists who are applying for or already studying art/design/crafts at college or university. The applicant can use the funding to study a course or programme in their own country or abroad, perhaps at an art school in London or Paris, or a course in painting! You can now apply for one of our artist grants worth US$ 1,500 each via Gudrun’s Good Deed.

The money for the scholarship fund comes from the proceeds of the sale of our 4 smock blouses in the December collection. For every smock blouse sold, we are donating US$ 2.

We hope this will foster the passion for colour, design and heritage crafts so that it can grow stronger and be shared with many others!
