The First Cut
Manchester Art Gallery
5 October 2012 - 27 January 2013
31 international artists who cut, sculpt and manipulate paper, transform this humble material into fantastical works of art for our stunning new exhibition.
Artist Workshop at Manchester Art Gallery
Join Claire Brewster for a 2-hour workshop at Manchester Art Gallery that involves drawing and seeking inspiration. A tour of the exhibition is followed by an hour cutting to make your own work.
Claire Brewster's work is about retrieving the discarded, celebrating the unwanted and giving new life to the obsolete.Claire uses old and out of date maps and atlases as her fabric with which to create her intricate, delicate and detailed cut outs.
