It’s that time again where the flood gates open and the new graduates are ready to question and embrace the new challenges that may follow, others may follow a different path but here is a section of some of the students with their art.
Some gems where there, Preston may seem a world away, with it’s newly acquired status of a city it questioning it’s identity and that has contributed to a Degree show strength with some character.
