Material and the Drawing Room in association with The House of Fairy Tales

Muffy, Nicholas, Joe and myself took a road tripped it to London where we participated in an installation on the front lawn of the Tate Modern during the long weekend of the Tate modern's annual festival. Over 100,00 members of the public passed through this temporary environment of artists, designers, inventors and sengineers.

Suddenly, I was totally surrounded and Joe was nowhere to be seen (I eventually found him drinking tea and pretending to be busy taking photos in an effort to avoid the crowds of children).

Muffy did some classic reading from Angela Carter's The Bloody Chamber and created life size shadow puppets with Nicholas whilst I kick started the badge making for our section titled 'Making Your Drawings into Things'. You can see more of Muffy's work on her website

The amazing card board ice cream van opposite The Drawing Room.
