Storyworlds is an exhibition to celebrate the Year of Young People.

The exhibition of paper sculptures was completed by senior students of art from a variety of Edinburgh Secondary Schools. Students took inspiration from the Writers’ Museum and Scottish Literature and worked with artist Tessa Asquith Lamb and our Learning and Programmes Team to develop artwork inspired by the diverse legacy of Scottish Literature. The result is a magical group of sculptures showing tiny enchanted storyworlds under glass domes. The exhibition also includes work by Tessa Asquith Lamb.

While we take every opportunity to ensure the details for Storyworlds: Paper Sculptures by Edinburgh Young Artists are accurate, we always advise that you contact the event organiser before setting out for the event to avoid disapointment.
