We are delighted to announce that we have just released details and booking for our all day Christmas Special Workshop that is to take place at Thame Girl Guide HQ in Thame, Oxfordshire on Saturday 24th November 2012. The workshop is to be called...
WHEN FATHER PAPERED THE PARLOUR....THE WEEK BEFORE CHRISTMAS!
If you listen to this little video you will be able to hear the famous Australian Billy Williams sing this c1910 song.
This project consists of an MDF base with a back plus two side walls and a chimney breast. You will be shown how to fix wooden skirting, picture rails, make a magnificent Edwardian wooden fireplace (with mock tiles), make your own wallpaper and partly paper your room just like father, floorboards in a new technique not shown in our workshops before, a crate (for father to stand on), a brush, a paper hanger's pail of paste, scissors, a table, Edwardian Christmas cards and a box of Christmas decorations tumbling out.
This is a versatile project and you do not have to set it at Christmas or indeed have it as a part decorated room.....you can wallpaper the entire room if you wish.
This will be great fun to do and numbers will have to be limited....so early booking is advised to avoid disappointment. You can bring your own lunch or walk up to Thame High Street and experience one of our wonderful many eating places available. Tea and coffee will be readily available all day in return for a voluntary donation to Breast Cancer Campaign.
The workshop will begin at 10.00 and end at 4.00.

Ok.....for those of you who do not receive our Nostalgia In Miniature Workshops Newsletter....you can catch up with our latest workshop news on here. To say that both of us have been working our little socks off behind the workshop scenes lately is an understatement.
A MESSAGE FROM CELIA
Those of you who follow my KT Miniatures website will have seen that as from June 30th, I'm shutting temporarily for a few weeks whilst I undergo some surgery plus consequently undertake some downtime after in order to recuperate. However I have every intention of being back again as soon as possible by the beginning of August, if not before. It does mean that I will not only be offline throughout July but uncontactable by phone too....therefore please direct all communication about our workshops to Robin.

SEPTEMBER WORKSHOP - THE LITTLE VINTAGE HALL.....THE OTHER ROOM!
ONLY 2 SPACES REMAINING
We are delighted to say that the prototype for this next little project is now complete and we are beginning to turn our attention to making up the kits. A great deal of thought has gone into how this project is put together in order for participants to find it easy and enjoyable. The is project is actually quite versatile and varied choices can be made at several stages of the construction so you can make this to suit your needs.
Through an arched window a painted 3D view will be seen. The flooring is a unique 1930s mock lino created especially and exclusively for this project however if you wish to have floorboards instead then materials will be provided for those too.
The sliding doors do actually slide.
For those of you who wish to set this scene in wartime, we will show you how to tape up the windows WW2 style plus include blackout material with curtains.
This is an utterly unique project that can be attached to the previous project of The Little Vintage Hall if wished. Alternatively if you have not attended the previous workshop, this project can stand alone as a little scene in its own right.
CURRENTLY WE ONLY HAVE JUST 2 SPACES LEFT.
PLEASE CONTACT ROBIN IF YOU WISH TO ATTEND....PLUS FOR MORE DETAILS INCLUDING A DOWNLOADABLE BOOKING FORM, PLEASE SEE THE PROMOTIONAL WEBPAGE.
OCTOBER WORKSHOP.....WHAT'S ON IN THE LITTLE VINTAGE HALL?
BOOKING HAS JUST OPENED...CURRENTLY HAVE 19 SPACES AVAILABLE
We will be giving you materials and teaching you how to make a 1930s tea urn, two wooden trestle tables, real fabric bunting, a card table and blackboard. Plus you wil be making two loose mock cardboard table tops with cloths and given ideas to create a whole variety of scenes.
We can accomodate up to 18-20 people for this workshop which is more component based therefore less intense so if there is a group of friends who wish to attend en masse....we may be able to accomodate you.
FOR MORE DETAILS INCLUDING A DOWNLOADABLE BOOKING FORM, PLEASE SEE THE PROMOTIONAL WEBPAGE.
