Miniature Village Renovation Workshops

Join local artist Karen Guthrie to help refurbish the much-loved Usher Miniature Village, a collection of hand-made model houses created by the late John Usher and sited in the garden of the Ruskin Museum.
Guided by the expertise of locals Maureen Fleming and Donald Shepherd – who have tended the Village for over 25 years – we will be improving the landscaping around the houses, mending dislodged stonework, re-painting windows and doors and generally sprucing up this extraordinary folk art work.
Drop-in, free, materials and tools are provided, and no previous experience is necessary.
Sorry, no unaccompanied children.
Location: Ruskin Museum Meadow (behind the Museum) , Yewdale Road, Coniston, LA21 8DU
