Bury College students produce two butterfly pictures which now have pride of place at Bury Hospice.

The two establishments have worked together in the past and, as part of the UAL Diploma in Art and Design Course at Bury College, the students had to produce artwork for the public and clients to develop their understanding of working within the creative industries.

“This brief required students to design artworks to display on a short corridor in Bury Hospice which links to a room designed for the residents to relax in and engage in contemplation,” said Bury College’s Art and Design Lecturer Andrew Rogers.

Butterflies were an existing theme within this part of the hospice and therefore the students’ designs coordinated with this.

Before the students created their designs they completed questionnaires with patients, visitors attending the day service care at the hospice and spoke to the staff and volunteers which helped with their final designs.

The work of students Olivia Prince and Levi Warren-Howard were chosen by the hospice to display on the wall.

Mr Rogers said: “The group created some lovely work for this assignment, we are proud of their efforts and look forward to working with Bury Hospice again in the future.

“The selected artworks look professional, further enhance the ambience of this part of the hospice and seeing their work displayed was a rewarding experience for Olivia and Levi.”

Olivia said: ‘I enjoyed visiting Bury Hospice, meeting some of the staff and spending time chatting with the patients.

“When designing my work I tried to capture the positive atmosphere I experienced on this visit. Overall I found working on the project a valuable experience that has given me an insight into working as a designer.”

Bury Hospice’s Ellie Burke, Head of Clinical Services, added: “We were really impressed with all the designs and it was a tough job deciding which two to put up in the hospice.

“They are impressive pieces of work and add to the relaxed atmosphere in that area of the hospice.”
