A three week work placement creating designs for tshirts in Florence is just the start for Art and Design student Sophie Purchase, who dreams of travelling the world as an animator.
The 19-year-old, who hopes to move on to university to study animation, said: “I have really enjoyed my placement in Florence and the opportunity to work in a different culture.
“As an animator I want to travel and work around the world and now I know I can do it.
“I was recommended the college by a friend and the facilities were really good. I have really enjoyed my time at the college. The tutors have been very supportive.”
