To mark the public opening of their degree shows, and the culmination of three years of study, Falmouth School of Art’s Falmouth Campus students gathered last Friday evening to celebrate with friends and tutors, before welcoming friends and family to their exhibitions.
Awards, residencies and bursaries were announced, and we’re happy to share snapshots from the evening with you…
