Calling all Collectors – The smallest exhibition for the smallest people is about to take place!

This year The House of Fairy Tales is the official charity for The Other Art Fair. During October’s Fair in the Truman Brewery, we are inviting artists from the fair as well as other established international artists to create a matchbox artwork for a specially curated fundraising exhibition that will be catalogued and promoted during the fair.

The Other Art Fair
from 15th – 18th October 2015
at the Old Truman Brewery, Hanbury Street, London, E1 6QR

This is the first of an annual exhibition challenging artists to make miniature works inspired by these minuscule containers. Artworks are being auctioned to help fund The House of Fairy Tales schools workshop programme in Spring 2016.


A tiny flame for keeping ingenuity and imagination alight.
