Pat Iannucci: Mini Greenhouse Project

Pat and her sister took a workshop with Fern Vasi at the Dallas show in May. They each dressed and wigged a 1″ scale garden lady. Then they created greenhouse scenes using an Ikea miniature greenhouse. The potting bench was made from scratch following an article from Dollhouse Miniatures magazine.

Pat is from Livermore, CA and her sister lives in Texas. They Skype several times a week to work on projects, primarily in quarter scale.

Photos from MiniCals Workshop: 1/4 scale ski lodge

On Saturday, April 23, 2016, MiniCals hosted a 1/4 scale ski lodge workshop, Part 1 of 2, at M & L Precision in Morgan Hill, CA. For Part 1 participants built, electrified, and chose their interior wall treatments.

M & L Precision, courtesy of Karen and Mark Laisure, is ideal for hosting the MiniCal workshops. The atmosphere for the MiniCals workshops is so conducive to working on miniatures that inevitably miniaturists come just to finish other projects, socialize and share. Lunch time drawings are always exciting. The small drawing gifts are wonderful artisan quality items donated by generous individuals. Mini table sales throughout the day are always welcome.

The Ski Lodge – Part 2 will be held on Saturday, May 21 at the same location. Participants will furnish their projects with laser cut pieces.
