This past weekend I had the opportunity to see the prototypes (in most cases) or photos (in a few) for the workshops to be given at next year's Chicago International. The full list should be on line in a day or two.
These are the workshops that intrigued me.
Arlene Finkelstein's New York City Florist Shop...could also be a Parisian flower shop with a few tweaks.
Michael Walton's very popular furniture finishing workshop where you use his proprietary materials and learn to finish furniture the way Michael does on his full-scale and miniature furniture.
Patricia Hopkins Studio French pastries...she has also designed and is teaching the box for these goodies-below. You'll walk away with all the items below, plus molds and materials to make more at home.
Isn't this Victorian Santa wonderful? As you know, I don't do dolls but he would be right at home with my Christmas market stalls. Maybe Anna Hardman will have one for sale. No way could I make this.
Whitledge-Burgess is offering a two-room workshop that can be finished in a number of ways. Not a good photo but the best I could do.
