STUDENTS showed how far their creativity could travel after setting up an exhibition for the public to enjoy.

Space and Earth travel-inspired wall hangings and play mats formed a display along with contemporary and vintage couture as Northallerton College students showcased their work.

And for the next three months their work will brighten the lobby of Stonecross Civic Centre, home to Hambleton District Council.

Head of textiles Linda Breckon said: “The quality of the students’ work is exceptional and I was very keen to show it to a wider audience.”

Hambleton’s arts development officer Kate Staines added: “It is fantastic to have the students’ work here on show as it really brightens the reception area and reveals just how talented they are.”

Fay Donaldson, 17, of Streetlam, created a play mat inspired by travel featuring a bus, fire engine, cars and tractors.

“It feels great seeing my work on public display,” said the AS student, who also plays flute, saxophone, clarinet and piano and hopes to be a professional musician one day.

Fellow student Emily Renwick, 16, created an interactive wall hanging featuring spacecraft, stars and planets.

She said: “It is exciting being part of an exhibition and I want to continue with my studies, hopefully securing a career in something creative.”
