To be honest I'm feeling a bit overwhelmed at such very lovely comments both on and off Blog for the WW1 'how to' project that Celia Thomas and I have just had published in Dolls House and Miniature Scene....and I'd like to thank everyone. It was finished a while ago so it's great to now see it in print
I can't resist posting the cover again....
But do take just a peep inside at the first part...you may just be tempted to create a scene of your own.
If you live in Oxfordshire you may be interested to see the scene itself and it's currently on display until 20th August, as part of a wonderful World War 1 Exhibition at The Thame Museum which is well worth a visit.
When it is returned to us we are planning to sell 'We Will Remember Them...' with 50% being donated to The Royal British Legion. If any individual or organization is interested, please contact us at any time.
You may remember earlier in the year, Lucie Roper the Editor of Dolls House and Miniature Magazine, joined us at one of our workshops - it was a lovely productive and fun day at a brand new, super venue - and she's posted a full review in this issue.
These are very relaxed workshops suitable for both new miniaturists and those who have more experience - absolutely no pressure except to enjoy working on a unique little scene, at your own pace and finish it off at home if you'd like to.
We are working towards our next Nostalgia In Miniature Workshop on September 27th at Bicester Avenue Garden Centre in Oxfordshire. 'DOWN THE LITTLE OLD HERB GARDEN PATH' will be another gently faded nostalgic scene which aims for realism and we will share our skills and techniques and show you to use very ordinary materials in new and exciting ways to create a very special little scene and inspire you to go on with your own.
All the details are on our website, as well as lots of pictures of previous workshops and projects and Booking is Now Open! While numbers are limited there are a few places still and we also have a discount offer if you'd like to come with a small group of friends. Bicester Avenue is an outstanding shopping centre too so there's a great opportunity for a little retail therapy.
Thank you for looking.
