Join Jennifer Little for a tour connected to Get Together and Get Things Done which is part of a city-wide programme in 2019 to commemorate the bicentenary of the Peterloo Massacre. Historians acknowledge that Peterloo was hugely influential: ordinary people eventually won the right to vote, the Chartist Movement grew into Trade Unions and the Manchester Guardian newspaper was established. Inspired by these events, we will explore with people the wider theme of the crowd through international historic and contemporary art and group activity, looking at how an art gallery can be shaped by the crowds that use them.

Join Jennifer Little for a tour of work on display by Halima Cassell, one of the UK’s most distinctive and dynamic ceramicists and sculptors.

Inspired by geometry, architecture, natural forms and foreign travel, Halima Cassell creates deeply carved forms in unglazed ceramic, bronze, stone, wood and cast glass. Cassell is gifted with an exceptional ability to visualise complex patterns and mentally project them on to 3-D objects. Her work is diverse in inspiration and form, but her personal style is instantly recognisable due to her bold, energetic designs, crisp carving and intuitive understanding of how to integrate pattern, form, material and scale.
