Denmark Tune 2015


Last week I went to Denmark, Tune for a full week of miniature workshops and meeting a lot of miniature friends. I did a 3 day workshop sculpting with James Carrington and for the first time working with silver done by Jens Torp.

Working on the hands and other parts just before constructing the dolls on the last day.
There was a new way of building the dolls so you have to get used to the techniques before something decent comes out of the clay!

My classmates which where great fun during the whole week.

Wednesday evening after yet another wonder dinner it was time to show the pieces we've made during our first class

One of the dolls I made standing in my dollhouse and still wearing the tissuepaper dress I quickly made for her just before the show, ofcourse in the future it will be a silk one!

On thursday we started with the second workshop in my case, Silver.
A new material for me to work with.
Working without a magnifying glass it was a bit difficult to do so they're not perfect pieces.
But for me it was a wonderfull introduction working with silver, which I intend to do more often!

The first stage was to make this tiny cup and sand it to get a smooth edge to it.

After that we had to cut out the one handle that we needed to solder to the bowl

And this is the result of  the workshop, the bowl is finished on the cake slicer
I have to work a bit at home and finish it during a next Silver workshop in October!

A big thank you to the organisation for creating this wonderfull week and meeting all the nice people during the week.
