Class Description: This Miniature Makers Class for beginners is back by popular demand! If you feel that a whole dollhouse would be too intimidating to start out with, here’s a quick and easy way to get involved with the wonderful world of miniatures…Spend the day creating a roombox suitable for a bookcase shelf. Make a living room, dining room, bedroom or even a kitchen! The room will have a floor, three wall-papered walls and a window. You will choose the type of room and color palette and we’ll construct a room that you can have fun furnishing and accessorizing. Once you’ve completed one, we can almost guarantee you’ll want to make another!
*Does not include materials. A list of materials estimated at $25-$30 will be sent to registrants one week prior to the class. Must be 15 years of age or older to attend. This class is limited to 8 people- don’t delay!
