Back to work with vengeance this week - going from sculpting to preparations for our next Workshop, and back again....keeps me busy and out of mischief!
I was asked to create a friendly, elderly Gipsy gent in 1/12th scale - a very special commission - and he was delivered this week. I'm reliably informed that he's now got a glass of cider in his hand and is preparing to drive off in a super waggon that has been built especially for him!
A lovely morning was spent with Celia, wearing our Nostalgia in Miniature hats, putting the finishing touches to our 1/24th scale 'Little Old Garden Shed' prototype for our first all day workshop at Waterperry Gardens on March 25th.
We are a little late putting up these pictures, and apart from The Thame Fair concentrating our minds recently, there's a lot of detail both inside and outside this tiny shed - just 5 inches tall at the top of the rusty old corrugated tin roof . We've made subtle changes in construction from the 1/12th scale to make for an easier build for the participants and given the woodwork a different look.
This shed has an old shabby white painted finish and an ancient black door - the participants, working in both scales, have a choice of finishes and lots of accessories to bring the shed to life.
Just today a place has become unexpectedly available on this workshop - it can be taken up in either 1/12th or 1/24th scale!! If you are interested - all the details are on our Nostalgia in Miniature website, please take a look and get in touch with either of us without delay.
Thanks for looking.
