Cabinet of Curiosity Studio

Newcastle & Gateshead

Cabinet of Curiosity Studio was established in 2010 by costume designer Caroline Collinge and architect Edmond Salter. The company seeks to inspire curiosity through voyages of discovery that ignite the creative imagination.

Collaborations have investigated hidden histories, stories, architecture, places and crafts, with the aim of engaging audiences in design and visual art. Projects have been shown across the UK and internationally in a variety of settings that include museums, theatres, libraries, heritage sites, outdoor festivals, arts venues and public spaces. The majority of commissions use craft and digital techniques with paper and timber materials to create sustainable artworks.
