A great number of artists working in miniature today display a compulsive motivation and an obsessive attention to detail. These talented artisans must create and customize tools to suit their needs; indeed the process of designing and constructing these tools is often as inventive as the finished miniatures themselves.

In conjunction with The Miniature exhibition, the following events are free and open to the public:
