Several studios were filled with graphic design projects and quality furniture, all of which the students had created.

David Coffils, studying Furniture Making, Restoration and Upholstery, rescued a drab three piece suite and gave it a modern leather look, fit for anyone's living room.

Rebecca Shaw's project was titled 'Transformations', she said: "I wanted to look at how things have changed since I was younger, like sweets and toys. It took me most of the year to complete."

Mercedes Stratton, a graphic design student, created a quirky alternative to Pot Noodles.

"My versions are desserts and each flavour has a different theme, such as horror, romance and comedy," said Mercedes.

The College of West Anglia has developed a reputation for excellence through the success of students like these and many more.
