It’s a small world for miniature enthusiasts

THE intricate work of Miniature Enthusiasts of Tasmania members will be on display at the Claremont Memorial Hall next month, with the public invited to explore the 2022 Doll’s House and Miniature Show.

The not-for-profit group meets regularly in the Lenah Valley, on the Eastern Shore and in Launceston, learning and sharing the skills of making miniature scenes and doll’s houses in various scales – 1:12 (regular dolls house size), 1:24, 1:48 and 1:144.

The crafy members occasionally make projects from kits but often build things from scratch, using scraps of timber, material, cardboard, used containers and other upcycled objects.

The public can expect to see a range of exquisite buildings and scenes made by group members, with many of the pieces including tiny hand-made furniture.

A number of traders will also be in attendance, selling supplies and ready- made objects in a range of scales.

The Doll’s House and Miniature Show will be held at the Claremont Memorial Hall on the weekend of 15 and 16 October. Entry is $5 for adults and free for accompanied children under 16.
