Chateau Impney

 We went to the dollshouse and miniatures fair at Impney today. Lots of the standholders who will be at Thame in February were there, and it was good to talk to them and catch up. Chateau Impney is a very nice venue and the atmosphere was very relaxed. Distance and travel time were almost the same as Miniatura.

Well done to Freda and George Dorrell for putting on the exhibition yesterday in aid of Leukaemia & Lymphoma Research and Hearing Dogs for Deaf People.

Local Dolls House Clubs exhibited some superb work, and lots of ideas were exchanged about how this or that was achieved and what materials were used. A good day for checking out what is going on locally in the miniaturists world, and possibly even spreading the word  and encouraging some non miniaturists to have a go.

Thame Sunday Workshops

The workshops are generating a lot of interest and quite a few places have already been booked. If you are thinking about doing a workshop on Sunday 19th February then you need to book your place soon to avoid disappointment.

All the details are on the website: http://www.thamedollshousefair.co.uk/

All the workshops are achievable in the day. They cater for complete beginners as well as those who just enjoy doing a workshop and making something. This is a way of learning about or developing the different techniques used by the professionals.
