This week I'm getting ready for the IGMA Guild School, which will be held in Castine, Maine June 12-19. http://www.igma.org/guild_school/index.html
It's a great event! Imagine a whole week spent with a large group of peopple who share a passion for miniatures, in a beautiful little town on the coast of Maine. There are classes (I'm taking Mark Murphy's Japanese tea chest class), seminars and demonstrations, an auction, a sales night and a lobster dinner.
Way too much fun!
This year, I'm giving a seminar on how to make a 1:144 scale version of a real house. I'll be using as an example the house from Manchester, MI that I made from May 27-July7 last year (see blog archive.).
I'm also submitting a proposal to teach a class next year. The project will be "Gardener's Retreat" - tiny garden shed based on small buildings I saw in Castine last summer.
It's a little more weathered looking than my houses usually are, but that look seemed appropriate for a garden shed. Here's the interior:
There will be more furniture, of course.
"Finished" pictures by Monday.
