Come & Make An Old Attic Room Scene In 1/12th Scale At Denman College In November!

I am delighted to announce that I have been invited by the Denman College in Oxfordshire to run a miniature workshop for them. Plans have been finalised, the date is set and the workshop prototype is complete. 
Old Attic Room Scene
Denman College is situated in a lovely Georgian house in Oxfordshire, and is the Women's Institute's centre for learning new skills, offering a wide variety of craft, cookery and lifestyle courses. You do not have to be a member of the WI to attend, it is open to everyone. I understand that if you are a member of the WI you are eligible for a discounted fee.

My workshop will be based in a modern part of the college, a purpose built building with wonderful facilities...I shall feel quite spoilt!

This is a residential workshop,  starting at 4.00pm on Wednesday 13th November and ending at 1.00pm on Friday 15th November, so incorporates two nights of accommodation and meals during your stay. All accommodation I understand is en-suite.  
  Every aspect of booking and payment is undertaken through the college itself. However, please note, an additional payment of £40 for the kit and all materials used to create this scene needs to be payable to me direct on the first day. 
Although this is the first time for me at Denman College, the workshop will be based on my usual workshop ethos of using alternative techniques and methods, plus some ordinary every day materials to create a beautiful miniature scene in 1/12th scale with that realistic aged look. Suitable for beginners and experienced crafters alike, you can make this as simple or as intricate as you like, in a relaxed and friendly atmosphere. 

A full kit is provided that includes instructions, all materials and a readily constructed MDF room box with perspex front, to create the scene that you see in these photos. 
Attendees will find this project versatile, in so much that you will be given options on a variety of aspects within this project. 

Such as....if you do not wish to have a go at painting a simple landscape scene through the scratch built window, just paint a blue sky, maybe with a random cloud, and cover your window with vintage lace. 
For the wooden chest, you will be given a basic pre-cut wooden kit, but it is up to you how you colour and fill it. You have options on what colour to finish your walls. You have options on how to fill the old fashioned tea chest. 

Just indulge your creativity and see where it takes you!

For those of you who would not normally be able to come to one of my workshops due to the long distance involved, this is a good opportunity to come to one of my workshops and have all your accommodation and meals arranged for you, in a truly delightful setting.
