Would You Like To Come To Our Next Workshop?

Saturday 27th September 2014
At Bicester Avenue Garden Centre
10.30am - 4.30pm
With just a limited amount of spaces left available for our September workshop and just three weeks to go before booking will be closing, do take a look at the following pics and let us know asap. if we can tempt you into joining us for a wonderful creative day! This little project has been designed to stand alone or sit alongside your old dolls house. 

Maybe you are a vintage dolls house collector, never having ventured or even considered the creative side of the miniature hobby fantastic this could look alongside an old dolls house! Our workshops are relaxed, informal, fun and friendly, you simply work at your own pace with our guidance.
With this project, we shall be making a unique nostalgic herb garden, complete with old pavers, Victorian style rope edging, quarry tiles, old bricks plus umpteen variations of our own cottage garden herbs made from a variety of materials....some which may surprise you! 
  Amongst some of the many herbs included are comfrey, lungwort, different thymes, chives, parsley, lavender and even a bay tree in a wonderful decorative planter! Plus we have included other plants too such as a climbing rose on tripod  and even some chard...and each attendee will be given a hand blown glass cloche made especially for us by UK artisan - Ray Storey.
This particular project is quite unique and potentially quite versatile, so you will be able to adapt the layout to suit your own needs. We will give you more than enough materials in your kit for you to experiment, plus the know how and further ideas to inspire you to push your creative talents as far as you want.  Even if you have been to our workshops before, we will be using some very different techniques and innovative ideas to inspire as always. 
Then of course there is the rickety old garden gate complete with rusty old bolt, right at the far end, set into the low stone wall. 
 For this particular project, we would recommend the 1/12th scale as the  herb leaves really are weeny and fiddly but if you are experienced and up for a challenge then you may like to have a go with the 1/24th scale. Those of you who came to the Spring Workshop, will recognise the stone wall....but don't worry, this is much smaller and far less time consuming to make compared to that fact, if you really wanted, you could make the little wall at home, therefore leaving you to concentrate on the planting and landscaping at the actual workshop instead.

 If after reading this, you may have been tempted, please get in touch with me here at KT Miniatures or Robin my workshop colleague asap, in order to reserve a space. We would love to hear from you and please do not hesitate to ask questions if you need more information.

Giac has expressed my sentiments exactly. It would be wonderful to be able to do one of your workshops. The detail is just amazing.

Awww....thanks for your kind comments Giac and 12Create. Is a shame that you all live so far away but isn't the power of the internet so fantastic in so much that all three of us live on three different continents and yet we can communicate and share our love of miniatures and related topics so easily and readily! Celia
