Furniture: More screens


Hello my friends,

I showed you all a post in 2019 where I showed you how I made a 1:12 folding screen or paravent. As you may know I am part of a small facebook group where we all build our own 'castle room'. Apart from monthly assignmemts every member gives the group a workshop.

In the current covid situation these are held via chat. Crafting in front of the computer while trying not to glue yourself to the keyboard.

As you may have guessed my workshop was about making an antique folding screen, fit for a castle. It is the first ever workshop I have written and given. It was great fun to do and people have made great folding screens.

To make the written description for the workshop I needed pictures to show each step. And for that I needed good pictures. 

So I made a second screen for the purpose of the pictures. And during the workshop I made a third one. So now I have 3 folding screens for Huis ter Swinnendael. With 22 rooms I probably find a good place for every one. 

Unfortunately I can not show you the great screens the participants made, but I can show you mine. On the picture above you can see all three together.

  2. Wat een leuk idee om deze kamerschermen te maken als workshop, Huibrecht, de jouwe zijn mooi geworden! Inderdaad in een huis op stand zullen er meerdere zijn geweest, daar heb je gelijk in.
    En, ben je nog lang blijven "plakken" aan je toetsenbord die avond.....;O)?! Gezellig om op die manier als groep samen te komen.
    Blijf veilig en gezond, zorg goed voor elkaar en nog een goede Bevrijdingsdag/avond toegewenst.
    Groetjes, Ilona

    1. Nee, ik heb mijzelf gelukkig niet aan de computer of mijn bureau vastgeplakt. Dat is allemaal goed gegaan. Ik wens jou ook alle gezondheid toe.

  3. Fabulous tutorial, Huibrecht! I love how all of the members of the group contribute and share their talents! The screen scenes are just lovely and I think every dollhouse has a place for one of these!

    1. Thank you Riitta, good luck making one yourself. Knowing your work that won't be a problem. Good luck!

  5. Task for today: Make a tutorial AND do all you can to not get stuck to your keyboard! *LOL* Thanks for giving me a good grin... sadly I have to admit that if you were me making this resolution to keep your sticky glued fingers away from the computer would be in my case the best and fastes way to get stuck. *grin*

    Your folding screens turned out fantastic, what a great and easy way to make them - with such an awesome result. No doubt the other group members enjoyed your tutorial - and also no doubt that you will easily manage to find places for those three screens you made.

    Hugs

  6. Ik had al eerder gemeld dat ik het een geweldige workshop vond. En ook zo leuk dat je het op zo'n uitgebreide manier ook met de Miniatuurgroep heb gedeeld, zodat straks meer deelnemers zo'n mooie kamerscherm in hun kamer hebben staan. Ik ga binnenkort aan mijn 1:48 model beginnen. Ben zo benieuwd hoe die gaat worden.
    Groetjes, Thea
