Scale Miniatures

Handmade in 1:12 scale

I’m proud to be an Artisan with the International Guild of Miniature Artisans. Miniatures have been a passion of mine since I was a kid. You can follow my work on Instagram @craiglabenzminiatures or on my Facebook page, Craig Labenz Miniatures. You can now buy a selection of my miniatures online at

Upcoming Classes:

2023 Guild School
June 10 – 17, 2023
Castine, Maine
Next June, I’ll be teaching a 36-hour class to make a 1/12th scale Philadelphia Double Chest at the International Guild of Miniature Artisans Guild School in Castine, Maine. I attended as a student in 2022, and taught an evening seminar. It’s just an incredible experience to be surrounded by so many like-minded (mini) people and so many talented artists in an historic seaside village in Maine. See the IGMA Website for more details. This class is full.

Upcoming Shows:

I’m sorry, I’ve decided not to attend the Tom Bishop Chicago show in 2023 so I can focus on recovering from foot surgery. But I’m hoping to be there in 2024.
