It’s time to show you the last of our prize-winning entries from the 2012 Creative Competition.
Based on The Corner Shop, there were dozens of truly amazing entries from mini-makers around the UK and beyond.
We’re delighted to announce that the third prize winner was last year’s champ, Emma Metcalfe, from Mid-Glamorgan, with “Diamond Jubilee 1897″.
Emma told us: “For this project I wanted to learn about and experiment with new techniques such as wallpapering, wood panelling, making floorboards and lighting – a Victorian pub would have all these features and more.
“I decided to build an extension on the pub which would hide the stairs and allow me to cut a hole through so the scruffy, well-worn stair carpet could just be seen.”
“On all floors I made the floorboard and nailed them down with small nails. The fireplaces were built from wood and the bricks inside and on the exterior made from plaster marked with a ruler.”
“I filled in one of the windows to create a large wall for the adverts and made the other window bigger.
“The attic space was a bit too low so I extended the walls upwards and built a new roof with a dormer window.
“The attic walls were plastered and the slates were made from cork tiles and covered in plaster too.
“To make it truly authentic I wanted it to look run-down and grubby but with enough oysters and treats for everyone!”
