Discover what we can offer you
We know, from what many members and traders have been telling us, that people want to get back to face to face shows ASAP so, it has been confirmed by the Guild Events & Management Committees that we will go ahead with the Spring Show in Kettering on Saturday 5th March, even if the current Covid Restrictions remain in place.
It is quite possible that the current restrictions (face coverings, good ventilation and Covid status checks) may be lifted before March but if they are not, we are informing all traders, exhibitors and visitors about what is expected of them so that everyone is fully informed and can enjoy the show.
Further information can be found on the Spring Show page and important information about the current Covid restrictions can be found here.
Join Robert Brown for a look at his layout “Llanidris” where he will talk briefly about the idea of “atmosphere” in a layout and how he has tried to build it in from the conception at the thumbnail sketch stage.
He will explore how he tries to work with perspective on a flat backscene, without it clashing with 3D scenery, and how colours and tones can create apparent depth. Robert will explain the use of forced perspective in his model buildings and the various ideas and methods which may help people trying to do something similar. He will be showing how he has gradually compressed the depth of buildings in Llanidris as they approach the backscene, and how he arrived at the distorted shapes that were needed.
Robert will be looking at his methods for creating wall textures, which are mostly done with DAS clay, and his slate roofing methods – particularly looking at how to reconcile rectangular slates with distorted, forced perspective buildings.
The event is live via Zoom on 26th January 2022 at 20:00 GMT.
You must register for this event as places are limited. The event is FREE to members or £2:00 for non-members.
