The First Cut

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 Talk and Book signing


Ron van der Meer was the first paper engineer to insist that adults could be as fascinated by pop-up books as children.His specialist books on architecture, music and psychology have been international best-sellers bringing the thrills of pop-ups to adults, and his ingenious mechanics show the full potential of paper engineering.  


Ron will give a talk about pop-up books, the manufacturing side of it and the ins and outs of paper engineering. He will show samples of his books, greetings cards and advent calendars, and give a demonstration of paper engineering a greetings card.There will be an opportunity for questions and answers plus signings of his new books.
