Admiralty Models Carving Workshop May 25 and 26, 2019


David Antscherl will present a two-day, hands-on workshop in miniature carving techniques for ship modelers. This will run on the weekend of May 26 in the picturesque and historic Niagara area of Ontario. The location is The Riverbrink Art Museum in the village of Queenston on the bank of the Niagara River, which figured prominently in the War of 1812.


The first day will cover additive methods using modeling clay. The second day will cover subtractive methods using edge tools. Most materials will be supplied. A list of things to bring will be sent to registered participants.


Consider staying a few days in the area. Visit Niagara Falls, Niagara on the Lake, the wineries and micro-breweries and the spectacular landscape of the Niagara Escarpment.  Toronto and the Thomson Collection of ship models is about 1½ hours’ drive away. There are many hotels and B and B’s in the Niagara on the Lake, as well as in Niagara Falls. However, early booking is recommended, as this is the beginning of the high season.


Early registration is also recommended, as space is limited. Cost will be US$275.00. Payment via PayPal to dvm27@comcast.net. 1818875446_AMworkshop19.thumb.jpg.fbfbf9b1b201733b5b29059058d5efe0.jpg

About the NRG

If you enjoy building ship models that are historically accurate as well as beautiful, then The Nautical Research Guild (NRG) is just right for you.

The Guild is a non-profit educational organization whose mission is to provide support to our members in their efforts to raise the quality of their model shipcraft.

The Nautical Research Guild puts on ship modeling seminars, yearly conferences, and juried competitions. We publish books on ship modeling techniques as well as our world-renowned quarterly magazine, The Nautical Research Journal, whose pages are full of articles by master ship modelers who show you how they build those exquisite details on their models, and by maritime historians who show you what details to build.
