AN EXHIBITION by the Hucknall Dolls’ House and Miniaturist Group is set to make a big impression.

The event at the John Godber Centre on Ogle Street a week tomorrow (Saturday April 14) will be the debut exhibition by the group, which launched three years ago.

It will feature dolls’ house items ranging from beds and furniture to kitchen accessories, all for sale.

But the centrepiece will be houses and miniature scenes created by members, who boast more than 100 years of experience among them.

Workshops will run throughout the day, complete with tips on knitting and sewing items, dressing dolls, decorating miniature houses, modelling food and using a computer to boost your designs.

A raffle will raise money for the group and also charities.

The group meets fortnightly at the Bentinck Conservative Club on Portland Road.

Its founder is Sofia Del Gaudio, who is well-known as manager of the Sense charity shop on Hucknall High Street.
