Upcoming Classes

2019 Chicago International, April 22 - 28, 2019

Miniaturist's Worktable

Join your fellow students for a project that combines 1:12 scale with 1/144 scale.  As always, students will work with familiar materials and some that may be new--like foamed PVC, laser cut card stock, 3D printed items, hand-cast resin pieces, styrene, and others.   Printed cards and paper and other items have been designed just for this class, which is full of fine detail.   Smaller Than Life will supply each student with a 1:12 scale try Square and coping saw, but feel free to bring other tools you may have or other "crafting" items for your table. This project is lots of  fun to design and make, and a great introduction to 1:144--you can do as much or as little as you feel comfortable with (just like at home). 

 

The class will be held Thursday April 25, 2019 from 9:00 a.m. to 6:00 p.m.
