"THE WORLD'S LARGEST MINIATURE WORKSHOP"
For over twenty years, the GULF SOUTH MINIATURES and DOLLHOUSE EVENT in New Orleans hosted an all day workshop we called "The World's Largest Miniature Workshop". It was offered free to all attendees, who numbered over two hundred annually, and featured a theme-based one inch scale roombox designed to be completed during the workshop. Here are the ones I designed and taught, shown in 1/4" scale:

On the morning of Monday, August 29, 2005, Hurricane Katrina, the fifth deadliest and at that time the costliest ever, slammed into New Orleans. It destroyed our venue and brought the miniature show and our workshop to an end. It did not erase the wonderful memories that the twenty years brought us.
