Why am I passionate about introducing children to design and manufacture?

As an ambassador for Basingstoke College of Technology, I love the fact through our creative business we get the chance to show people how you can take an idea and turn it into reality. So much in life arrives on the click of a button and this is a special opportunity for children to get ideas straight from their heads onto a piece of paper! We can then show them how their designs are made in our workshop. What they go on to make holds so much sentimental value and love - it’s really beautiful!
— Mitch Lloyd (Owner, Petra Jewellery)

*We will only modify your design where necessary to make sure it is possible to make within an overall material and time budget of £500 RRP


Here are some entries from our last Children’s Design Competition to get you inspired…

This is PERFECT for lockdown!

I’m a busy mum trying to keep the house and my business going during this crisis and think this is a really lovely way to entertain families and also give them an insight to how you can take an idea and turn it into reality.

My daughter Heidi will be entering too (don’t worry, I won’t let her win)!
