Meeting with local miniaturists

Hello all,

Yesterday I met with 10 fellow miniature artists.  It was a very pleasant meeting arranged by Goldie at her home.  Goldie is one of the best miniature artists here in Israel, in fact, I consider her as number one. Goldie's home is a mini art gallery.  One could spend hours looking at her dollhouses and room boxes.  But above all, she's one of the most generous miniaturists I met.  Look at what each of the 10 of us sitting around a long table received as a gift from her.

There was also an exchange of handmade gifts.  Each of us had to bring something small, packed
as a gift.  All the parcels were on the table and passed around.  This was what I received, made by
Goldie herself.  My own gift was given to a lady called Shosh who I met for the first time. I hope she likes it.

It was decided, among other issues, that we meet and work together once in about six weeks.  At each meeting one of us will  teach how to make a miniature.  We are going to make shoes next

Given the work kit, we had the tools to make a tiny miniature while we sat and talked, laughed
and enjoyed ourselves.  Here is what we made.  (Something very similar to what I've done and posted about before.)

Gifts keep arriving and I just have to wait until Christmas to open them.  This is an exciting wait
but let me tell you it's hard and soooo  tempting.

Don't forget to have a look at this wonderful tutorials site, a tut for each of the 24 days before
X-mas given by very talented Spanish artists.  http://www.mundorecetas.com/foro/showthread.php/297101-CALENDARIO-DE-ADVIENTO-2014-(-NO-escribir-por-favor).
