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 store.craiglabenz.com.
2023 Guild School
June 10 – 17, 2023
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.
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.
Here’s a look at what I’ve been up to on Instagram:
