Cabinet of Curiosity Studio

Creative Collaborations in Arts & Design since 2010

Inspiring curiosity through voyages of discovery that ignite the creative imagination.

Cabinet of Curiosity is named after cabinets of curiosities: the Renaissance wonder rooms containing encyclopaedic collections of objects that would tell stories to communicate knowledge and amazement about the world. 

It was absolutely brilliant to work with Cabinet of Curiosity.  From the first meeting with Caroline and Edmond it was clear that their combination of skill and experience would make the vital contribution to our project which we were looking for.

Paper house created a wonderful opportunity for families to engage directly with practicing 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.

 The artists are talented but open, and have mastered the knack of sharing and involving people effortlessly. This is a rare combination. I look forward to working them more in the future.

WW1 Ships on the Medway was a brilliant project and an important education programme. The Trust was pleased to be able to support Cabinet of Curiosity’s work and to see the impact it had on the children who took part.

Through the WW1 Paper Toys project, Cabinet of Curiosity Studio helped young people re-experience heritage and improve hand-making skills. I am very pleased that our customers at the Kent History & Library Centre were among those to benefit from the project.
