Art and Design student Katie Smith
Katie Smith enrolled on the Foundation course in Art and Design to help her gain new skills she could transfer to her job in a tattoo shop.
The 25-year-old said: “I was working as an apprentice in a tattoo shop and wanted to build my skills in other areas of art.
“I looked at other colleges but chose this one because I felt more comfortable here and thought I would get treated like more of an adult.
“The course has helped me gain more confidence as I have had to display and talk about my work. The tutors have been very helpful and given me a push in the right direction – I would recommend it to anyone.”
