Fine art students from UCLan have combined items as diverse as cocktail sticks, Lego bricks and ties to produce a wacky exhibition.
The items on display were informed by a range of people, places and memories and include one by mature student Evelyn Rose who has used her love of fine art as a form of occupational therapy following several operations on the joints in her hands and arms.
The 60-year-old artist created a large quilt from recycled materials including a school shirt, an apron from the 1940s, over 30 men’s ties and a bridesmaid dress.
And Charlotte Calland from Wigan used a month’s worth of empty recycled plastic and an array of materials, including cocktail sticks, marble and roof tiles, to create her striking display.
The 24-year-old said: “Most of my materials have been recycled, are free or been found on Preston’s flea market. I wanted to see what I could do with cheap materials.”
The exhibiton can be viewed in UCLan’s Hanover Studios on weekdays until September 20, from 10am to 6pm.
