Here are photos from Geoff Wonnacott's two furniture workshops offered at the 2013 Academy. From England, Geoff is an IGMA Fellow in Furniture and will be a dealer at this year's show. Be sure to stop by his table.

Geoff explains a technique to student Judy Pick to construct his Silver Table. "I learned how to use different tools and make a piece that looks professional," Judy says. "My friends couldn't believe I made it."
"Geoff's class taught me techniques and methods that can be applied to many different miniature projects," says student Larrell Howell, Santa, Maria, CA. "I am very proud of the piece I completed." 
"This (the Academy) was one of the most exciting experiences when it comes to miniatures that I've ever had," says Sharon Zanassi. She was a student in both of Geoff's furniture classes.
