The always terrific Collingwood Children's Toy Library is having a Messy day for kids this Saturday from 10am -12pm. There will be slime, mud finger paint and a whole lot of fun. More details on their site.
Things to do
: Musée Cinéma et Miniature :
In another life I worked as a miniature model maker in the film industry. It was a wonderful job and combined my love of tiny things and sculpture. I used to make miniature version of the sets that would then be built life size. It was a strange feeling to know a landscape in such tiny detail and then go and stand in the middle of the life sized version. A gouge done with a stanley knife became a crater you could stand in.
And then I was shown these images from the Musée Cinéma et Miniature in Lyon. Housing 100 tiny sets created for films and executed in wonderful detail, I would dearly love to go and visit one day. Aren't they magical?
