Well, we managed to make it to the miniature weekend in the Cotswolds - and we had so much fun! We again had a lovely group of ladies who were all very friendly and had such great ideas for the characters they wanted to make - It is always so much fun seeing what little people appear out of the clay!
This year we had everything from a pretty Edwardian lady to a drag queen :) and every doll turned out really well and so full of character. It is amazing to see what can be achieved by people who have never sculpted or dressed a doll before.
Again it was a great event, very well organised and the venue is a really nice place to spend the weekend. Everyone who came seemed to go away very happy with everything they made - there was a lot going on! We would like to thank Karen, Gillie, Wendy, Clive and everyone else who made the weekend possible - especially as we were not very organised in the run up to it because of recent events at home which meant we were not always around to answer emails!
It was so nice to catch up with friends old and new - especially Sally Watson and Kathy Brindle (who we only get to see once a year!) they always make us laugh the entire time we spend with them!!
It was also so nice to work with Wendy again, who did our workshop last year and this time she really managed to achieve what she set out to make - she also brought along a doll she had made in her own time and he was so impressive!
We would also like to say a huge thank you to Kath, Wendy, Jenny, Karen, Linda and Caroline who made the weekend what it was - you were all so lovely and eager to learn and your little dolls turned out wonderfully! We look forward to seeing you all again at fairs or at the next miniature weekend ;)
We are now getting ready for Arnhem and Philadelphia Miniatura - we have a lot of exciting things in the pipeline and a lot of new characters - I will post pictures as and when I can :)
