'Far, Far Away' Preparation Underway

I've been a busy bee, developing ideas to create a paper forest, in a tent, at Manchester Art Gallery...  I am working to fill a large tent (5 mtr diameter) with the beginnings of a paper forest, so that gallery visitors can explore the tent and join in with some paper-cutting action!

The aim is to create a story world inspired by the Pre-Raphaelites and their interest in staying 'true to nature'. Here, I hope to bring woods  and forests to life, inviting visitors to jump into an imaginary world of the Pre-Raphaelite paintings. In the tent, there will be other items hidden away, so that the experience will be multi-sensory (smell, sounds, things to look at and feel as well as make). We also hope to play with light and cast shadows...

Please see the pictures below for progress...
