Based in Cape Town, South Africa, the Guild is a non-profit organization committed to the promotion of miniature craftsmanship in the Cape Town area.
Our origins go back to 1990 when an American professional miniaturist, Nick Nichols,
came to South Africa.
He came to present a series of lectures on the theory and techniques of making miniatures and room boxes at the University of Cape Town Summer School. This event coincided with an exhibition of dollhouses and miniatures at the Natale Labia Museum and contributed to the founding of the
Miniaturia Guild of Cape Town.
Our aim is to promote the love of miniatures, teach basic skills and accumulate a library of magazines, books and dollhouse and furniture plans.
We are a group of warm and generous people who help each other and share one another’s joys and frustrations.
