1.  A COTSWOLD WINDOW NOOK    

Teresa Layman           Monday, Tuesday, Wednesday 8a-6p             $645

You are invited to join Teresa in her new workshop to build a small, quintessentially English window nook. These window nooks are found all over England. They evoke a sense of  warmth and contentment in living a lovely, quiet life. This extremely versatile setting would make a great Tudor sitting room, reading nook, sewing nook, nursery space or any other whim you may have to display your collection of very special miniatures.

 The window nook is finished with both interior space and exterior space (which really wants a climbing rose vine!), but allows for your special items to be displayed, and appreciated, in full view. The lovely details and innovative techniques to achieve this look can be used in other areas of your miniature work. Students will learn to make leaded windows; paperclay and paint the stone and plaster walls; make the stone drip canopy for the windows; use paperclay castings for added detail; age and apply wood trims to simulate beams; and learn how to make simple, silk curtains, gathered on a brass curtain rod (yes, there are sewing techniques included).

 Overall dimensions of this piece are 10” wide by 8” deep by 12” tall, including the base. All tools and materials will be supplied, but students are welcome to bring their own tools if they wish. Registrations for this workshop close March 21, 2021.
