ArtScapers are delighted to be working with Cambridge Youth Opera, co-creating a ‘Forest of Imagination’ for their new production of Hansel and Gretel. Artist Caroline Wendling will be working with two classes of 8/9 year olds from Girton Primary School and Mayfield Primary School during February and March thinking about forests and fear and freedom. They will be spending time in the grounds of Girton College and Murray Edwards College as part of their research, as well as working together in the Storey’s Field Centre.

ArtScapers is the education programme for Eddington, a new area of Cambridge. Begun in 2016, it has worked with children and their communities in innovative ways, including professional development days, resources, events, exhibitions and an interactive website.

Many thanks to Head Gardeners Jo Cobb (Murray Edwards), Steve Whiting (Girton) and Gladys Jones (CCI volunteer) for their support.
