City of Portsmouth College students show off their work at Portsmouth Cathedral.

Reverend Canon Kathryn Percival said: ‘All of us at the cathedral have really enjoyed hosting The Big Draw – it’s been a fantastic combination of art, creativity, and relationship-building – and at the end of it all, we have beautiful bunting round our nave.

‘We have all been so impressed by the quality of the art and design work – and by all the thought and concentration that has gone into the project. Just passing through the Cathedral and seeing that focus and care going into their work was wonderful.’
