June Free Prize Draw

 

June Prize DrawWe've made the draw for this - check your e-mails.

Internationally acclaimed miniaturists Stokesay Ware are offering this beautiful plate from their Chealsea Range for us to give away to one lucky subscriber to the Miniatura Newsletter in June.

This is one of their new highly collectable range inspired by the great 18th and 19th century potters like Spode, Doulton, Minton and Wedgwood who were the innovators of their day. They embraced new technologies so they could develop and perfect printing techniques to bring beautiful, highly decorated pieces to a much wider market than existed for the very expensive Chinese imports. This plate, inspired by Ashworth from 1860, is typical of the work from that period.

Spring Miniatura 2017

Excitement and anticipation is mounting amongst miniaturists, makers and collectors alike. We, here at ‘headquarters’, are putting the finishing touches to the show, so it's time to give visitors a roundup of what they can expect to see and what special things not to miss.letterbox bright

As ever, all the craftsmen have ‘pulled out the stops’ to present their best work, however there are few exhibitors to let you know about in particular as they are either new or returning to the show after a long or short ‘sabbatical’ break.

Arlette's Miniatures has been away for a few years but is back with her top quality upholstered furniture.

Bel's Mini World makes her debut at the show with realistic food that looks good enough to eat.

Dolls House Direct has recently acquired the Hearth & Home range, so visitors will once again be able to see these sinks and fireplaces.

EH Miniatures a newcomer creating delightful miniature animals.

Little Houses Plus is technically a newcomer but brings an old favourite, the Small World Products range, back to the show.

No 1. Elite Designs is another welcome returnee and their unmistakable room boxes and cabinets will be sure to impress.

Another new feature of the show is the Children's Gallery Table, it's very early days but we want to encourage younger craftspeople to have a go and give them somewhere to show their work during their visit to the show. This is all inspired by a recent enquiry from one enthusiastic young man but we are happy to welcome anyone else who is bringing a child to show their work too. Just get in touch with us - This email address is being protected from spambots. You need JavaScript enabled to view it. and we'll let you know how it works.

Many exhibitors use Miniatura to launch new products and whilst we can't list them all you will certainly want to take a look at Miniature Mansions new book, Elite Petite's new range of 144th scale houses and furniture and Master's Miniatures globe drinks cabinet.

MENU - Available online to help you plan your visit.
