"We have some outstanding work on display this year and cannot wait for the Show to open so that everyone can enjoy it!

"Students have used materials such as Vietnamese bamboo, stretched steel and reclaimed climbing rope to make this exhibition totally refreshing, unexpected and vibrant.

"From massive ceramic pots designed by computer to the tiniest of delicate jewellery, the products generated by these students are unique and commercial, challenging the norms of designing products and of making art."
