Welcome to our
first dedicated Education micro site.
Here we have tried to illustrate for teachers and educational professionals the best of our Wonderland educational activities over the last 3 years. The Wonderland exhibition in Sheffield has now come to a close and the results and feedback from the education days will be uploaded in readiness for Wonderland visiting Belfast between 8 October and 8 November 2008.
Wonderland is the fourth Art/Science project undertaken by Helen
Storey Foundation. It is a collaboration between Tony Ryan,
Scientist at University of Sheffield, Trish Belford, textile
Designer, Interface, University of Ulster and Helen Storey,
artist and designer. It is a core aim of the Wonderland project,
which began by examining possible solutions for packaging and
sustainability issues, that the work should instigate public
response and suggest educational projects for schools and higher
education. In 2008 Wonderland is a three city tour which began in
London (29 January - 29 February) continued to Sheffield (18
June – 13 July) and will travel to Belfast (8 October – 8

ten years the Foundation has been at the forefront of the art and
science interface, instigating novel cross disciplinary works,
and visual art touring exhibitions, many of which have been award
winning cultural hybrids. These projects have toured the world,
and aim to provoke and stir the imagination of audiences, as well
as explore the human condition. All projects have an educational
dimension and aim to have societal and cultural impact. Do feel
