A CLASSES 3 DAYS (2023)


A1 - “Paris” rooftop scene. - Erik Goddard

CLASS DESCRIPTION:

In this workshop we will create an eclectic rooftop scene in 24th scale. Even though it has hints of Paris, it will be uniquely its own style. It features a room with a slanted set of windows, plain plaster walls, and wood floors which allows you to decorate the interior as you wish. This room and the surrounding partial rooftops create a standalone scene by itself* as if looking at the rooftop level. It will have an electrical supply as well to light the scene.

 

We will be using foam, wood, glass, paints and glues to create the scene. In particular, I would like to emphasize creativity and uniqueness as the main aspects of this project. No special skill is required, but it is helpful to know how to use a hobby knife, paints, glues, etc. Tools suggested are hobby knife (Exacto type knife), tweezers, ruler, paintbrushes, glues, and small clamps.

* If you like this completed scene you will have the option at a later time of also creating the unique and eclectic building beneath it!

 

Materials fee: EUR 50 (updated) for the wood and glass and electrical.

A4 - Miniature Victorian Stock Pot - Marie-Louise Markhorst

CLASS DESCRIPTION:

These pots were placed on the stove and filled with water or stock so there was always hot water (or stock) available.
In this class, we will make a large copper pot with a tap. You will learn a large variety of metalwork techniques: sawing, drilling, dapping, riveting, and soldering.
Students will saw and form the various parts of the pot and lid out of copper plate. We will use a jeweller's saw, drill, and hammer. Then use a flame to solder the parts together.
The handles and tap are made of brass tubing and wire. Then the tap is soldered onto the pot. The handle is riveted onto to tap, then the ebony part is glued.
It is recommended that you have some experience in using a fretsaw or a jeweller's saw. The pieces must be made very precise to be able to solder them. You are welcome to bring your own jeweller’s saw or buy one with me. I also have a few extra to lend. Please let me know if you want to buy one, so I can bring it.
Material fee: EUR 45 (+ €15 if you want to buy the jeweller's saw)
