This month we’re living in the lap of luxury with high class miniatures fit for the grandest dolls’ house. Whether you like period style or modern, whether you’ve got a huge budget or a miniscule one, we’ve got everything you need to create the highest quality miniature worlds. Discover a 1:12 scale Victorian mansion that was built from scratch and learn how one woman went from being a pub landlady to a miniature artist. Plus, we reveal an insight into the new dolls’ house collection at Newby Hall. If you’re feeling crafty, why not sew up a Regency-era ball gown or make a beautiful wedding cake out of polymer clay. We also show you how to re-upholster a footstool with custom fabric, and how to knit a delicate pair of lace drapes. With great prizes to win and interviews with contemporary miniaturists, this issue is packed with the best miniature ideas.
