Treloar College art students were one of a group of artists whose designs were selected as part of a project to create benches honouring Jane Austen. Over the Easter holidays, local artists Fiona Pearce, Penny Fleet, Karen Burling and Lisa Bartlett took the students' design and applied it to the bench. When the students came back this week they were able to meet up and admire the stunning work of both parties. We look forward to seeing the bench on public display as part of the 'Sitting with Jane' trail from June to August 2017.
