Back in 2008, I had been running the Kensington Dollshouse Festival for 3 years & was wanting to find out more about how the incredible miniatures we had on display at the show each year were created, so I set about making a short film about some of our regular exhibitors.

With the help of Darlene Stevens, we travelled to their studios & filmed them at work. The result was a short 20 minute film about the show & the exhibitors who attended & 7 masterclasses with the makers featured in the film.

Tarbena Miniatures have now been exhibiting at the show for over 25 years & it was fascinating to see the amount of processes are needed to create their incredible miniature furniture.
