Adventures in paper

Emily worked with Colvestone Primary School in Dalston, Hackney on an installation for the new Hackney Library, CLR James.  

Hansel and Gretel is a well-known European fairy story recorded by the Brothers Grimm in 1812.

It tells the story of Hansel and Gretel, a young brother and sister who are sent into the forest by their wicked stepmother and lured into a beautiful Gingerbread house belonging to a witch.

The two children save their lives by outwitting their stepmother and the Witch and they manage to escape home to their loving father. Phew!

Lucky they were so clever!

You can see all the characters from the story and some of the scenes in our artwork made entirely from paper. We looked at artists who make art using books and paper, and pop up books.
