Cutting, Shaping & Forming with Paper with Laura Drayson

62 minutes - 3 exercises for different abilities

In collaboration with paper artist Tony Crosby, Laura designed the set for the Palace of Culture. Join Laura and explore the art of paper cutting using repeated patterns inspired by beach finds, like the figures searching for treasures in Clive Hodgson's People and Water.

This workshop was commissioned as part of Palace of Culture, a virtual exhibition created in collaboration with V21 Artspace, Newlyn Art Gallery & The Exchange and Arts Council Collection for the National Partners Programme.
