Raw Talent is a biennial exhibition at New Brewery Arts in Cirencester. It showcases the very best work produced by the students and tutors of our extensive education and participation courses and workshops. It will be held Saturday 26th May – Sunday 17th June

Each year New Brewery Arts delivers over 3500 hours of teaching time, across a broad curriculum of craft, ceramics, glass, textiles, painting and drawing, art history, digital media, jewellery and more. Our education programme is attended by people living in and around Cirencester and across the region (Gloucestershire, Wiltshire, Oxfordshire) and, with our guest accommodation, from even further afield.

Raw talent celebrates the work done by our students and their tutors. Each year we curate the work, and invite visitors to vote for their favourite work and we award a public vote prize of a one day workshop at New Brewery Arts.
