Another Peep Over the Little Garden Fence.......

For those of you who are followers of this blog, you will have already seen that I am running a workshop for the very first time in partnership with Celia Thomas of KT Miniatures. We only started advertising it 2 weeks ago and have already filled nearly all twenty spaces!

The workshop is taking place on Sunday June 26th here in Thame, Oxfordshire at the Thame Guide HQ. We have just 4 more spaces now currently available (at the time of posting this) so do get in touch asap if you wish to join us for an afternoon of creativity!

Above is a picture of the 1/24th garden...and if I can make the sliding box are some more!

If you sign up for our workshop you will have the opportunity to make this scene in either 1/12th or 1/24th scale. We will be using a combination of natural & synthetic materials along with various techniques/skills to create an overall nostalgic and old fashioned garden.The finished item can be used to butt up against an existing dolls house or stand alone. In fact we are already planning the second workshop project to take place in September (hopefully). This second project will complement the little garden scene and also be used with an existing dolls house or would be able to stand alone..... but more about that another day!

Meanwhile, if you would like further information about how to book for one of the last few remaining spaces, then please click on the following link to see the official page:

NB. Special notice for any UK dolls house clubs

If your club would like to spend an afternoon in July, making the little garden project from our Over The Little Garden Fence Workshop, then please get in touch with either me or Celia. We would consider running an additional workshop on a Sunday afternoon in July, as long as there are 10 people or more - if your club wished to block book.

Meanwhile - we have noticed that many UK dolls house clubs contact information on the internet as a general rule, is old and no longer applicable. Information doesn't appear to have been updated over a number of years in some cases. So, if someone from any UK dolls house club would like to forward their info to either me Celia, then we will set up a general list with up-to- date dolls house club info at a glance that everyone can share. Often local clubs running exhibitions or small/charity fairs seek to contact the folk within their area as well as makers ...and it is often difficult to keep up with changes.

Thanks for looking - Happy Easter!!
