WORKSHOPS IN ELST (between Arnhem and Nijmegen)

 

Now we have moved I have a seperate room for giving workshops. My dollhouses and miniatures are also on display in this room. There is much to see! The main thing when attending a workshop is to make a beautiful miniature, though a good atmosphere is also very important.
A workshop day has to be a real treat

HARDANGER EMBROIDERY

Hardanger embroidery is an old embroidery technique.
You have to be very precise because you have to cut the fabric between the stitches.
During the workshop we'll make a pillow. I will also give you a pattern for another
pillow and a table runner. 

 

LIBRARY IN A MINI BOOK

When the book is closed ( see the picture at the bottom) it looks like a "normal" mini book.
But when you open it................................................there is a complete library inside it!
We make the book and the big bookcase together, you can design the rest yourself.
I have made two examples.

An old man is "reading".
Next to him, on the table, is a bottle of wine, a wineglass
and a book ( with real pages).
But.........................
the man fell asleep and the book fell on his lap.
A woman is reading a book while it is so peaceful and quiet
in the library.
It is in the afternoon and she has a nice cup of tea.

 

 

This is how the books look when they are closed.
You can choose your own cover.
Price: € 39,-

This nice minibook is about my dollshouses and miniatures. If we have enough time left, you can see all the pictures from the book for real around you. On top of all that we can make the Postcardalbum of photos in Arnhem. A mini book and a postcard album to put in your dollshouse. That is a nice memory of this day.
