Cabinet of Curiosity Studio work between the visual arts, and traditional disciplines of architectural and textile crafts to develop narrative-led temporary exhibits and installations. Collaborations have investigated hidden histories, stories, architecture, places and crafts, with the aim of engaging audiences in design and visual art. Projects have been exhibited across the UK and internationally in a variety of settings that include museums, theatres, libraries, heritage sites, outdoor festivals, arts venues and public spaces. 

Cabinet of Curiosity Studio was founded in 2010 by costume and theatre designer Caroline Collinge and architect Edmond Salter. The studio brings expertise in the paper arts together with design for a diversity of commissions at a variety of scales. Abilities in architecture and design are supplemented by skills in consultation, digital fabrication, 3D models, visualisation, illustration, film making, animation, public engagement and workshop delivery.
