Name of creator
Margaret Stewart (married name Beck) studied at The Glasgow School of Art from 1949-1954 under Bob Stewart (no relation). She completed a diploma in Textiles in 1953, and a post-diploma in 1954. Students wanting to complete a diploma course were first required to complete the general course, all in all two years of full time study. During the 3rd and 4th years the studies were restricted to a main subject and one subsidiary craft. The best students who completed the diploma course could remain for one additional year to complete a post-diploma course. Students specialising in Textile Design and Fabric Printing were "trained to produce designs suitable for present day markets", and had to also study the "technical aspect of their subject in classes held jointly by the Glasgow School of Art and the Royal Technical College, Glasgow".
