Overview

This book is jam-packed with unusual and fun-to-make projects and, with a highly original approach, Christiane Berridge takes the reader through the day, from morning to night-time, bringing the Victorian dolls’ house to life. There is something for all levels of ability: beginners will enjoy making the sugar cone, waxed flower dome and dressing table set, while for the more experienced miniaturist there is the challenge of the travelling trunk or four-poster bed. From the hustle and bustle of the basement kitchen, the impressive hallway, the grand dining room and comfortable parlour, to the elegant bedrooms, this is a tour through the Victorian house that offers over 70 projects for every room. All projects use basic tools and materials.

Editorial Reviews

Library Journal

For miniaturists wanting to re-create Upstairs, Downstairsin dollhouse form, this book of projects for a three-story (plus basement) Victorian townhouse is just the thing. Berridge (Making Miniatures: Projects for the 1:12 Scale Dolls' House) emphasizes servants' roles in the Victorian era. She leads readers from the maid's bedroom in the early morning and works her way through the day to the master bedroom in the evening, offering 70 projects for furniture, clothes, and accessories for every room. (The book assumes that the house is already partially furnished.) An excellent selection for public libraries needing more material on dollhouses and miniatures.
