UCEN Manchester visual arts graduates held their end of year showcase at the Rogue Artists Studio.

Future artists, designers and creatives from UCEN Manchester exhibited their stunning creations at the Collective Visual Arts Graduate Show.

Graduates from across subject areas including Contemporary Art Practices, Fashion and Textiles, Creative Media and Visual Communication, and Jewellery and Contemporary Design displayed their final work at the Rogue Artists Studio, in Openshaw.

The preview evening saw guests touring the displays and speaking to the designers themselves, before enjoying a fashion show featuring cutting edge design.

Rachel Addis, Contemporary Art Practice tutor, said: “It’s really important that students have a final exhibition from all years of the degrees we offer.

At UCEN Manchester, we give our students lots of experience in the performing arts. We really encourage our students to gain lots of work experience to get an idea of what it’s like working in the creative industries.

Graduate Catherine Clark said: “I was based at Fielden campus and I wouldn’t have been able to produce my designs without the great facilities at UCEN Manchester. It’s a fabulous place to work and experiment.”
