Time to re imagine that room at the top of the stairs. We are going to transform a traditional attic into a new kind of space! This could be a Writers Den, a She Space, a Library, or just a comfortable place to kick back and relax with your eclectic furnishings. There’s a lovely view out the window, which lights up to form a lovely outdoor backdrop. The vintage Tudor style stained glass casts warm shades into the space. The high peaked; open beam ceiling is the perfect place for your chandelier!
Please join Michael as we build this lovely warm space, “Romantic Attic”. The finished piece measures 19 ½” wide by 16” deep by 16” tall. The basic structure is built of lightweight high quality Baltic birch plywood. The basic walls, floor, and ceiling parts will be precut by Michael so we can concentrate on the interior surface details. The back wall is faux stone molded in high relief styrene. The floor is cherry wood, which we will miter cut to create the distinctive pattern. The beams and rafters will also be created in layers of wood to achieve the fine vintage style. You’ll notice the forward areas of the roof are cut back to expose the beams and enhance viewing. These areas are covered with clear acrylic panels. To the right of the area of the dormers is a Tudor style stained glass window measuring 3” by 8”. Students will create the pattern using real lead strips, precut, and furnished by the instructor.
The lovely chandelier by Tim Kraft is included in the cost of the workshop. All wiring, LEDs and power supplies will be included in the price, and provided by your instructor. There is a remote control used to dim the LEDs behind the window so you can adjust the mood! Don’t be afraid of the wiring, I’ll be there to help, and you’ll see it’s really quite fun and simple. Every effort will be made to assist you in completing the project before you leave. We can work late or start earlier, the times are just estimates. Your satisfaction is my goal!
Please note, the furnishings shown in the pictures are not included in the workshop.
