2013 MiniCals Workshops

In 2013, the local MiniCals miniature club is offering a series of monthly workshops. The Workshop Series for the first six months of the year is listed below. Classes are in 1" scale. Reservations are being accepted now. See contact information below.

January 19:  Bring your toolboxes and gluing jig for this shadow box. We will provide a great picture of a French Bakery (Boulangerie). Build a shelf unit for the display window and make baskets for breads and pastries.  $30  (first 30 people)

February 16:  Experiment with fimo, kitchen clay and air dry clay making breads and cakes. Learn coloring techniques for your baked goods. They will look great in the display window built in January's workshop. Molds, paints and clays will be provided. $15

March 23:  Learn a paint/tissue/glue texturing technique for the exterior of a vignette box. Make an egg carton/slate floor and electrify the box. $25

April 27:  We will build and tile a sink/cabinet/wine rack and paint wine bottles. This could be a sink/cabinet without a wine rack if that is your choice. This will furnish the March workshop vignette. $20

May 18:  Regular solder vs. liquid solder. Experiment with both and you will complete a simple metal project in 1 inch scale. $17

June 22:  Learn how to create decals and decorate plates. $15

A basic toolbox and gluing jig is all that is needed. We are now taking reservations.  If you are interested email Ruth Heisch. We will offer shoebox sales.  Bring your sack lunch and we will provide hot and cold beverage.
