In this unusual time, we are all acquainting ourselves with new restrictions on our personal space and community. Being in a confined space on your own is difficult. Being with your loved ones for over a month is, whilst a blessing, also tiresome at times; it is for this reason that the Giant Dolls’ House is providing a welcome activity to help fill your days!
Through making a dolls’ house in a shoebox, we hope to bring a little fun and creativity into your life whilst showing the importance of community and support in times such as these. All you have to do is find a box (it doesn’t have to be a shoebox!) and decorate it in a way which reflects your experiences, emotions and surroundings in times like these. Along with your box, write a little story, or explanation about it and why you chose to decorate it as you did – we love hearing about your experiences!
For this installation of the Giant Dolls’ House, however, we are going virtual. So, when you’ve finished it, post it onto your social media, tag us, and then we will take your box and bring it together into one big socially distanced, self-isolated, disinfected community ! Instructions will be on the website and social media.
