Thank you all for coming! I hope you had a blast.


Valentine's Day Anthropomorphic Beetle Dollhouse Diorama Class at Quimby's Bookstore NYC
Rhinoceros beetles: nature's tiny giants. Adorable, with their giant heads and tiny legs, and wonderful antler-like protrusions. If you think they would be even more adorable drinking tiny beers and holding tiny fishing poles, or holding Valentine's Day cards, we have the perfect class for you!

In today's workshop, students will learn to make--and leave with their own!--shadowbox dioramas featuring carefully positioned beetles doing nearly anything you can imagine. An assortment of miniature furniture, paper, paints, and foods will be made available to decorate your habitat, but students are STRONGLY encouraged to bring any dollhouse props they would like to use. 1:18 scale is generally best. Beetles stand about 3" when posed upright like people.

Each student will receive one beetle and one shadowbox in addition to materials as mentioned above and all supplies needed to pose and attach the shadowbox items.

Daisy Tainton was Senior Insect Preparator at the American Museum of Natural History before becoming a curatorial assistant, and has been working with insects professionally for several years. Eventually her fascination with insects and  love of miniature items naturally came together, resulting in cute and ridiculous museum-inspired yet utterly unrealistic dioramas. Beetles at the dentist? Beetles eating pie and knitting sweaters? Even beetles on the toilet? Why not?
