A Forest of Imagination

The sounds and drawings featured in this short film were gathered in workshops led by artist Caroline Wendling during the ArtScapers programme for 8 and 9 year old children from Girton Glebe Primary School and Mayfield Primary School in 2020. Workshops took place in the gardens of Girton College and Murray Edwards College, University of Cambridge and in Storey’s Field Centre during February and March of 2020.

The work was commissioned by Cambridge Youth Opera and was to have been shared at their performances of Hansel and Gretel, scheduled for April 2020 but cancelled due to COVID-19. The film was made in July 2020 with Creative Direction from Caroline Wendling, filming by Sally Todd and soundscape from Caroline Wendling and Jake Ziegler.
