Have you ever dreamed of creating a miniature world? Are you wondering how to make realistic furniture and scenery from scratch, but on a smaller scale?

Miniatures are smaller versions of furniture, houses, rooms, or scenes. During this 4-session course, you will learn the fundamentals of miniature making by creating a beautiful entryway with lights and plants, elegantly framed in wood. You’ll work at a 1:12 scale using various tools and simple materials to create a custom miniature.

Session 1: Introduction to the use of various tools and creation of the structure using foam board and a knife. Creation of the door and window. You’ll learn techniques to create an authentic look and make your miniature look real.

Session 2: Setting up the wall structure and mastering the use of acrylic paint in several layers. Steps and detailing techniques to give the scene a realistic look.

Session 3: making the floor and creating the vegetation and mini flower pots with cork sheets. Making and installing a roof with balsa wood and cardboard.

Session 4: installation and connection of lights. Touching up and finishing. Exchange and further advice for potential future projects.

Everyone will have the opportunity to personalize their work by choosing colors, adding vegetation, and changing the shape of the door and window.

Skills required: patience and attention to detail and above all, the desire to learn a new art form.

The price includes all materials and equipment, as well as lots of valuable advice!

The sessions of the course starting on November 30 will take place on Wednesday November 30 and Wednesdays December 7, 14, 21 – from 6 to 9 pm.  

Note: this course is only given in English for the moment. But no need to be fluent in English if you are a good observer! 🙂

J’ai adoré ce cours! La prof nous guide à chaque étape et nous partage toute sortes d’astuces qu’elle a développé au fil du temps (techniques, matériaux, outils, etc.) ainsi que le matériel utilisé et où on peux l’acheter. Le cadre miniature est vraiment amusant à créer et le résultat très joli! Il y a plusieurs étapes à compléter à chaque session donc le temps est un peu serré, mais ça reste un cours très chouette! On part tous des mêmes paramètres de base à respecter puis au fur et à mesure des étapes on peux personnaliser plusieurs éléments pour créer un miniature selon nos goûts et inspirations.

I absolutely loved this workshop! I made the most beautiful Greek-style house thanks to our teacher Tamar. She was really dedicated to help us achieve the best final result. She provided all the material and told us where to find it. She was happy to answer any questions we add.
