Acorn wood cottage

Join us in building this 1/2 scale whimsical wood cottage. The design is based on the real life Hansel House in Carmel, California. Learn techniques such as handcrafting the cottage tree supports, creating faux stained glass windows, making shingles, aging and texturing by layering paint colors and stains and creating faux stone. The cottage is raised on a 9” round wood base and is designed to fit snugly under an 8” x 12” glass dome. The charming raccoon peeking out of a knothole, as well as the resin chimney, fireplace, flooring, singles, wood base, and ornamenttal acorn light fixture are all included. An extra set of non-seasonal diamond paned windows is also included.

The creative possibilities of Acorn Wood Cottage are limited only by your imagination. A home for forest creatures, a fairytale cottage, a spell and potions shop or it could serve as a one-room display scene for your favorite rustic items. This class will be a casual and fun learning experience with 2 instructors.

The glass dome, animals furnishings, and accessories are not included.
