A PEEBLES pupil has designs on donations at Tweeddale Museum and Gallery.

Fifth year pupil Isabelle Elsmore was tasked with making something on the theme of the The Great Outdoors for her National 5 Design and Manufacture portfolio.

The team at Tweeddale Museum were in need of a new donation box and they had already approached Peebles High School's technology department to see if pupils would be interested in creating one.

When Isabelle approached staff with her design brief they were delighted with her plans.

Isabelle’s design incorporates branches, twigs and leaves, which not only celebrate The Great Outdoors, but also complement the current exhibition, Intertwined, in which textile artists Rose Campbell and Alison King take inspiration from the beautiful forests surrounding Peebles.

Assistant curator Phoebe Stewart: "It’s wonderful for Tweeddale museum to work collaboratively with Peebles High School - and what a wonderful outcome for all involved.

“As a charity, Live Borders aims to invest in the local community, and we are so pleased with our new box from the very talented Isabelle!

“We would like to thank staff at Peebles High School for their co-operation and we wish Isabelle all the best in her future career and plans.

"Without doubt she is very creative and talented, and who knows, maybe one day she will exhibit more of her work at Tweeddale Museum.”
