Design your own miniature holiday-themed café in this delightful in-person workshop. Over the course of six hours, miniaturist Tammie Knight will take you on a 1:12 design journey. As you create your own cafe, she will join you, sharing her process, tips, and tricks along the way.

To help you create this enchanting café, we'll provide your café walls, furniture kit, which includes contemporary furniture deisgned by Tammie, art supplies and tools, plus a plethora of deaccessioned materials from the Archive's own collection of letter-centric design. You'll need only bring yourself and your spirit of creativity!
