Winsford subway to be transformed with artwork produced by Warrington & Vale Royal College students

Level 3 Graphic Design students from Warrington & Vale Royal College produced a series of artwork to be presented in an underground subway in Winsford.

Students researched the industrious history of Winsford and visited various cultural hotspots and iconic buildings such as local pubs, churches and waterways. The students found this to be an incredibly enriching experience that changed their perception of the town.

Over 25 pieces of work were created which intend to be displayed in a local subway for passers-by to admire and enjoy. Students and tutors came together to celebrate their achievement at the college’s Winsford campus last month and were delighted to be joined by Winsford Town Councillor Laura Whitehead.

Karisme Singh, Level 3 Graphic Design student at the college, created a piece of work inspired by Winsford’s St Chad’s Church and the surrounding conspiracy theory that it was picked up and moved by the devil. We are thrilled to share the success of Karisme, who is progressing on to study Graphic Design at the University of Chester starting in September.

Jayne Fox, Curriculum Manger: Media, Games & Graphics at the college, said: “The students spent a lot of time on this project but it was all worth it! They had to liaise with partnering companies which was a great experience to take forward with them. They’ve produced some excellent work to a professional and high-quality standard.”

The students thoroughly enjoyed this project and picked up plenty of transferable skills and experience that will support them in their future careers. To find out more about studying graphic design or a related course at Warrington & Vale Royal College, click here.
