Fashion designer Wayne Hemingway led a masterclass for aspiring young artists and designers at a university in the South East of England.

The designer and his wife Geraldine held a session for 28 teenagers at The University for the Creative Arts (UCA), which has campuses in Surrey and Kent.

Mr Hemingway, who is an honorary graduate of UCA, taught the group how to turn old garments into new.

Work from the Saturday club will be exhibited at Somerset House in London.

The students, aged between 14 and 16, heard how the Hemingways broke into the fashion world.

Sue Shearer, from the university, said: "The group was totally engaged with the Hemingways' unique presentation and teaching style - their informality and ease with which they offered advice and delivered information was a revelation to the students."

The masterclass took place at the UCA's Epsom campus.
