Well folks....here we are again, our last posting of 2014!
First up, we must give a special thanks to everyone who came to our two separate workshops during 2014. We hope you enjoyed them as much as we did....they may have been quite challenging in different ways but who would have guessed that the stone wall was made out of egg boxes, fencing made from matches, winding path as well as roof tiles made from cardboard, and bricks from sandpaper! We hope this illustrates that you do not necessarily need fancy materials or tools to make beautiful miniatures.
Above you can see a photo of Geraldine's "Round The Back Of The Old Gardener's Cottage" project that she made at our Spring 2014 workshop....and we are immensely proud of her! She came to her very first workshop in 2013 as an absolute beginner, completely convinced that she would never be able to make anything but thought that she would give it a go anyway. And here we are, just a few months later and she is producing single handedly this gorgeous little scene that you can see here.
Margaret came to her first workshop with us in the autumn of 2014. She sent us this photo of her finished "Down The Little Herb Garden Path" project and we were completely blown away by it. We think it is absolutely exquisite!
THE LITTLE VINTAGE TOY SHOP
By now, everyone reading this will probably be aware of our next workshop that is taking place next June.

But did you know that we now have the promotional page up with more information?
Much planning has gone into our June 2015 all day workshop and making the prototype for this particular vintage style project has been an absolute joy. For those of you who love vintage dolls houses and also like the challenge of creating, you may particularly love this project. We will be offering a place to everyone on the Reserve List within the first two weeks of January as soon as we have official confirmation from the Bicester venue of which Saturday in June it will be. Then soon after, booking will go live on the website for all remaining spaces. As the list is now rather long and this workshop is proving to be rather popular, it is highly likely that we will be running this workshop on not just one but two different Saturdays in June. Please do still feel free to email us if you wish to be added to the Reserve List.

FOR ALL THOSE ON THE RESERVE LIST
PLEASE NOTE THAT ONCE WE HAVE THE DATE CONFIRMED BY THE VENUE, EVERYONE WHO IS ON THE RESERVE LIST WILL BE CONTACTED BY US DURING THE FIRST 2 WEEKS OF JANUARY. THOSE PEOPLE WILL BE GIVEN 5 DAYS TO CONFIRM WHETHER THEY WISH TO TAKE UP THEIR PRIORITY BOOKING OR NOT, THEN BOOKING WILL GO LIVE ON THE WEBSITE FOR THE REMAINING SPACES.
And finally, all we need to do now is to wish you all....
A Merry Christmas & Happy New Year
From Nostalgia In Miniature Workshops!
Hope to see you in June 2015!
