DON’T BOX ME IN!

EDP Norfolk - - Exhibition - Each model is housed in a box just 33cm high and the rooms in­clude:

If you could de­sign your own minia­ture dream room, what would you cre­ate? A shell grotto, a bath­room float­ing in the clouds, a ball­room, a haven for bees, a lux­ury of­fice for a bad-tem­pered mouse, a sor­cerer’s study or the lair of a de­mon dog?

All these rooms, and more, are part of the Small Sto­ries show – de­signed and cre­ated by Nor­folk peo­ple rang­ing from school­child­ren to ar­chi­tects.

Twenty-two sub­mis­sions were cho­sen to be trans­formed from a de­sign idea into a dolls’ house room, to go on show along­side 12 of the most trea­sured dolls’ houses in the coun­try. A dream-like re­con­struc­tion of the great hall at Strangers’ Hall, Nor­wich, by artist Va­lerie Doll­man.

A room for leg­endary Black Shuck af­ter a hard night’s ghostly roam­ing, by il­lus­tra­tor and print­maker Sandy Hors­ley.

A sea-shell en­crusted grotto, made with shells col­lected from Titch­well Beach by Chris Jack­son.

A clut­tered sor­cerer’s li­brary in an an­cient cas­tle, by Nor­wich artist Matt Reeve.

A mag­i­cal, colour­ful fairy-in­spired bed­room with canopied bed to dream the night away among flow­ers, toad­stools and but­ter­flies, by Alicja, a pupil at Queen’s Hill Pri­mary School, near Nor­wich.

To­tal Im­mer­sion Nor­wich City! A room for all lovers of the Ca­naries, cre­ated by mem­bers of Thet­ford’s An­cient House Teenage His­tory Club.

Rooms de­signed by young­sters from Wy­mond­ham High Academy’s ju­nior art club and by mem­bers of the Nor­folk and Nor­wich As­so­ci­a­tion for the Blind, who de­vel­oped a room to ex­plore by sound and touch.
