An installation and participatory activity for young children 6-12 years that coincided with the 'Small Stories' exhibition of doll houses at the V & A Museum of Childhood. Drop-in paper craft workshops enabled children to create architecture and characters using collage techniques and recycled paper materials. Cabinet of Curiosity assembled the childrens' work to create a giant house inhabited by paper dolls within the museum space that changed on a daily basis over the course of the two week-long activity
Paper house created a wonderful opportunity for families to engage directly with practising artists and explore materials and techniques which they wouldn’t ordinarily experience. Caroline and Edmond developed excellent workshops which deliberately foregrounded non-digital activity using paper-based skills. Families really enjoyed the quality of the materials and the potential to interpret the theme in so many ways – the result was a very unique and beautiful paper structure which grew over the holiday and linked directly with the Museum’s important paper model collections.
