Making Miniatures with the Lower Hutt makers club

From The Weekend, 11:04 am on 12 January 2020

They make fishbones out of toothpicks, potato chips from the seeds of capsicums - can turn almost any object into something that can be used in the tiny worlds they create. 

Miniature makers are people who create incredibly life like objects at a fraction of their usual size. 

The Lower Hutt Miniature Makers are a group of about 25 people who meet regularly to learn how to and create tiny objects, to create tiny scenes. 

Laura Dooney went to meet four of the club members, Rio Cox, Gay Buchanan, Irene James and Christine Kiddey, to talk all things tiny.
