Believe it or not, there are still things about convention that I've not covered...
1. Convention dinner gifites
Always something to look forward to. We each got a copy of New Zealand's smallest history book (full printed inside, of course!)
and a teeny weeny model of a boy in a plane (by Jewel Lewis, based on a photo of one of her grandchildren)There was a scavenger game, and everyone received a one-twelfth-scale chocolate fish as a prize.
I was only booked in for one, the tea trolley by Alison Ede (the 1940s armchair by Inge Veale [PDF link] was full by the time I got my application in, sadly).
It was a quick build, even though my miniature-building skills were feeling quite rusty.
I didn't finish it as I wanted to paint it when I got home. Of course I'm still trying to decide if it should be black. Or white. Or stained... *sigh*
My workshop was held upstairs in the cafe building. Others were luckier with their location: their workshops were held in a hangar!
It was a great convention, and I'm already planning my trip to convention 2018 ('Shop 'til you drop') in Palmerston North.Oh, and if you're not photoed out, I'm loading some more general pictures to my NZAME convention 2016 FLICKR folder.
