Welcome to summer school
Miniature in Tune 2017
It is a great pleasure for us to welcome you to Miniature in Tune, a summer school for people who are fond of making their own miniatures and like to challenge their craftsmanship.
As the new organisers we will do our best to continue this exceptional tradition. Our priority will still be the high standard of instructors and to create a cosy “hyggelig” and inspiring week for all of you.
For 2017 we have invited the following international creditable miniature artisans: Bill Robertson from USA, James Carrington and Jens Torp from England, Jeffry Antonis and Tine Krijnen from The Netherlands and Valeria Bonomi from Italy.
Each teacher offers a 3-day class and a 2-day class. The teaching language is English.
Summer school takes place at Tune Kursuscenter (Tune Conference Centre), which is set in lovely rural surroundings, run by a Production School: Produktionsskolen i Greve og Høje-Taastrup.
For further information about the teachers and the place see www.miniatureitune.com.
Please note that our website and e-mail address use the Danish spelling min……itune, not the English min……intune.
