Academy opened in February

he congratulated the

school very highly on the progress made. He
was greatly pleased with the character of the
work in still life, in enamel, and in embroidery,
and made special mention of most of the works
here reproduced. Particularly worthy of mention
were two very successful buckles in copper and
enamel, designed and executed by Miss Irene
Payne ; an altar cross in copper and ivory made
for a Birmingham church, and a clasp in silver
repousse by Miss Florence Sterne ; a small box
in wood and steel by Laurin H. Martin ; a design
for stained glass by Miss Effie D. Ward; an
embroidered panel for a screen by Miss Helen
Faulkner, very pleasing in colour; a drawing of
a child by Walter Sherwood; and two designs in
colour for the decoration of a screen, by Bert. A.
Alvey, a member of the class for House Painters
and Decorators. Much good work in flat design embroidered fire-screen by helen faulkner
