Merry Christmas From Nostalgia In Miniature Workshops!

Well the festive season is now almost upon us and another year nearly at an end. For those of you who attended any of our workshops this year, we hope you enjoyed the experience, are pleased with your creations and suitably inspired!  Thank you for your support, we have thoroughly enjoyed your company! 

Although we are both hoping to have a lovely rest through the festive season, our thoughts have already been turning to our Spring Workshop 2014. Plans are well underway and below you can see a hint of what we will be making in our "Round The Back Of The Old Gardener's Cottage Workshop"....a very special workshop indeed. It will take place at a brand new venue, just off the M40 (more specific details below) and we hope to confirm the date  at the beginning of the New Year, when booking will open. We will now be aiming to run this workshop probably mid April if possible.

The images above and below are that of the prototype in 1/12th scale, as it currently looks. We still have some additions and tweaking including a vintage style water carrier, pots of seedlings, vintage style hanging basket etc. ....but we think you will like this very much!  This little scene oozes nostalgia and realism from every nook and crannie. We anticipate the cost of this workshop will be in the region of the last two all day from approx. £68.00-£72.00.

We have begun to compile a Reserve List for anyone who is interested in coming. If you would like to reserve a place, then please get in touch asap.

Special Group Discount
For a group of four or more people that book together  for our Spring Workshop, a 10% discount off the full workshop price will be deducted from the final balance for each member of that group booking.

Terms & Conditions For Discount Apply
All deposits and then subsequent balances must be paid together by all participating members of each group booking. If one or more members of the same group booking fail to pay the balance, and the number of the group booking falls below the required group number of 4 people, then the 10% deduction will not apply.

This workshop will be taking place in the conference room that is situated within the refreshment area of Bicester Avenue Garden Centre, just off the A41 and about 5 minutes drive off Junction 9 of the M40. The garden centre is situated within a whole complex that houses Hobbycraft, Lakeland, Laura Ashley and Cotton Traders. There is ample free parking and you will be able to purchase refreshments (hot and cold) throughout the day. The workshop will be all day and we will have at least one hour break at lunchtime so you can browse the various shops to your hearts content!
To be confirmed in January.....due to this venue's booking terms, we are not able to officially book the date until January.  But we can tell you that it will be on a Saturday probably in April 2014.
