1:24 scale Gingerbread House Workshop with Ara Bentley

Join miniaturist and YouTube sensation Ara Bentley for this beginner-level workshop to make a 1:24 scale miniature Gingerbread house out of cardboard and fake frosting.  This house can be decorated with 1:24 scale miniatures (not provided) on the inside OR you can keep the walls solid and only decorate the exterior for use during holidays.  This class comes with the cardboard house kit, faux frosting and $5 worth of faux candy.  Feel free to bring your own candy/decor if you are doing something other than a Christmas themed Gingerbread house.  Students should be able to finish constructing and decorating the house during the class time, however if this doesn’t happen, students will be provided with information to make/purchase their own faux icing to finish at home.
