Oooh, I love architectural scale models! Even better, when they are toy theaters! I first started assembling theaters from kits. I have a few Benjamin Pollocks and used to love browsing through their site at all the offerings. They have shelves of goodies. The first theater type assemblage I made was for an article my friend Lynne Perrella wrote for Somerset Studio (Sept/Oct 2001). Later I would make a much larger theater with drop-in scenery, props, and characters for Lynne's book Beyond Paper Dolls (2006). All the extras were stashed in a pull-out drawer which included a paper doll of Ville Valo. Stampington surprised me by including him on The Raven stage with Poe for an article in Somerset Studio (Sept/Oct 2007). It was a huge thrill to visit (was it 2004?) Joseph Musil's Salon of Theaters with Lynne and our True Colors friends at the Santora Arts Building in Santa Ana, CA. Joe treated us to a presentation and shared his passion for the theater, the models, and the great architectural history of real theaters. There are societies all over the world dedicated to making and displaying toy theaters. I can see why - it's an addictive project.
It would be a fun workshop wouldn't it? It would have to be at least two or three days long, and you'd have to expect some issues getting it home. Maybe it could be my first online class? Ooh, I'm not quite ready to be on camera yet. I'll leave it to the pros.
