STUDENT artists have helped redesign York Hospital's courtyard.

York St John University’s Fine Art course members used the theme of nature to create an imaginative yet calming space for patients, visitors and staff to enjoy.

Their works included a butterfly tree, a pebble mosaic sculpture and a dressed tree.

The Friends of York Hospital provided £5000 for the project last year.

Kat Hetherington, art and design development manager, said: “We wanted something that caught people’s eye and given people’s interest so far I think we’ve done that.”
