Associate Tutor, Marcus Rees Roberts, comments that “at West Dean, students are prepared to push themselves and their work and to explore areas that they would never have dared visit by themselves. This year is another excellent group of students. Some work slowly and some work quickly; some agonise for weeks over the smallest decision while others go for it with reckless abandon; but the work of each and every one becomes richer and more beautiful.”
