As a child, Peiwen’s father showed her many craftmaking skills & she began to make flowers in paper and resin clay (part of the Japanese handmade traditions). In 2007, she left her job and her parents in Taiwan to marry her French husband and she move to the south of France.
In 2009, Peiwen began making dolls house miniatures again, including flowers, gastronomy, some dishes (meat, vegetables, pastries) and some utensils (plates, dishes), which have been shown in several exhibitions, and published in the book of miniatures “de retour du marché”. Due to COVID, Peiwen has not managed to attend one of our Live Events in London yet, but has taken part in our Online Showcases in 2020. Her work is of exceptional quality & her were so pleased she agreed to share her passion for miniatures with us by teaching this class.
