Artists on the Contemporary Photographic Arts course are displaying their silk screen prints, where photographs are made into prints and brought alive with colour and other effects.

The exhibit also features a display of photographs and handmade books.

Student Hannah Whitehead said: “We’ve loved doing this exhibition, it has been a refreshing change learning a new art form in screen printing.

“There are nine different students’ work on display and we’re all really proud of the works that we’ve created.”
