Convent of St. Teresa
The convent of St. Teresa in the remote hills of Spain has remained unchanged for 3 centuries. Yet while the nuns have gone about their business below, no one seems to know who maintains the candle in the room at the top of the stairs.
This is a 1:12 scale project, but very compact, measuring 20x20x10 cm. The magic of this piece is the illusion created by the sense of a room at the top of the stairs, where we cannot see, and by the candle on the table, which appears to have no wires. In the project, you will rig this effects, build the walls and stairs, install the rear window and lighting, and create the table with a choice of scenarios. The painting is an example; that space is for your personal touch, or nothing at all. You will have options to create the frame and exterior to the project. The project is lit with LEDs which can be operated with a battery pack.

Henry VIII's Merchant Table
Enjoy learning the techniques to carve this merchant's table. It has two parchemin panels at the front and a smaller one each side. Parchemin is an early form of linenfold and this is a stylish and intricate design. Then learn how to assemble and finish the table.
I teach in easy stages so the class is suitable for all abilities, although beginners should be aware they may be slower than experienced carvers.
