IGMA School in Castine, Maine

Each year, the International Guild of Miniature Artisans hosts Guild School in Castine. Students explore a variety of projects and learn new skills from some of the world's best miniature artisans.  It's a week chock-full of learning and doing, networking and sharing, and even a bit of shopping.  The Lobstah doesn't hurt, either.
