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 fourposter 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.
Christiane Berridge is the editor of GMC's The Dolls House Magazine. Making miniatures is now a way of life for her and dolls' houses remain an absolute passion. This is her second book for GMC Publications. Her first, Making Miniatures: Projects for the 1:12 Scale Dolls' House (ISBN: 1 86108 381 5), was published in 2003.
