Yesterday, pre-registration was due, and referencing our membership email the photos are up for 2018! I know there are at least 12 classes at the top of my list! Here is a link for your viewing pleasure. http://www.igma.org/guild_school/2018/48_hour_classes.html When you break it down, and look at the fact that shared dorm room accommodations and meals are included, and you add a priceless week of creating miniatures with friends and learning from some of the finest miniature artisans - it is in an incredible value! Need answers on a roadblock that is impeding your scale modeling success?? This is the event to attend!
I have just finished my Queen Anne Writing Chair from my Guild School class with Elga Koster. She is a wonderfully talented teacher and a master at making jigs that help students achieve results! I finished my chair with Watco Danish Oil and then a coat of Briwax, which I have used frequently on real size furniture. The cushion is a Bargello pattern adapted from an Annelle Ferguson Pomegranate pattern. I adapted it by shortening the stitches to go over 2 threads to make the pattern a bit smaller. The support tape on the bottom of the seat was woven on a Greta loom in a Guild School seminar by Bonni Backe. (I could not post the picture of the underside of the cushion.) ;( This chair will be the desk chair in my Louisiana Plantaion bedroom at Aragon. The room is circa 1850, with a few "modern" upgrades in electricity. Martha in Louisiana
