Unusual Containers Class Spring 2014

Unusual Containers Rotating Banner

Title: Unusual Containers
Date: Wednesday, April 9, 2014
Time: 9:30am-12:00pm
Where: The Mini Time Machine Museum of Miniatures
Instructor: Carol Deters
Skill Level: Beginner
Class Fee: $20/$18 for Museum Members
Registration Deadline: April 2, 2014

Class Description: When you think outside the “box” there are endless possibilities for creating a unique miniature vignette. Unlikely containers can become the most fun and creative displays. A clock case, jewelry box, drawer, wine box, hatbox, breadbox or even an oatmeal canister can become the ideal container for your miniature scene. A plain old shoebox with an attached lid can be made into a delightful self-contained miniature- perfect for travel with children. Many craft supply stores sell papier mache boxes, allowing you to decorate the interior and exterior- and then close them up for easy transport. A dried gourd could be the perfect home for a fairy or little animal. With a little imagination and decorative materials, these ordinary containers can be turned into something special!

Instructor Biography: Carol Deters has a life-long love of miniatures. As a child she spent hours rearranging tiny furniture stacked in orange crates. Later, she made several play houses in various scales for her children and then for grandchildren. She continues to create dollhouses and vignettes, and has a wonderful collection of minis from all of the Spanish speaking countries she’s visited: Spain, Mexico, Costa Rica, Guatemala, El Salvador and Ecuador. Carol’s miniatures have been featured in Dollhouse Miniatures, Miniature Collector and The Heart of Miniatures magazines.

Minimum/Maximum Enrollment: 4/8

Tools/Materials: Basic art supplies will be provided. Bring with you a container or two with an idea of what you would like to create, as well as any elements you would like to include such as: wallpaper (wrapping paper, scrapbook paper or small print wall paper), carpet (placemats, felt or upholstery fabric are all good options), accessories (such as miniatures, trinkets, perfume tops, jewelry pieces, pictures, ephemera) and furniture (any pieces you plan to use in your vignette, you can of course add this later too).

To Register: Pick up a registration packet at the Museum and submit with payment or call 520-881-0606 to register by phone.

Instructor: Carol Deters

Later she made several play houses in various scales for her children, and then for grandchildren. She continues to create dollhouses and vignettes, and has a wonderful collection of minis from all the Spanish speaking countries she’s visited: Spain, Mexico, Costa Rica, Guatemala, El Salvador, and Ecuador. Carol’s miniatures have been featured in “Dollhouse Miniatures,” “Miniature Collector,” and “The Heart of Miniatures” magazines.
