Medieval Great Hall

Lord of Locksley Hall

— The Merry Adventures of Robin Hood —


Started at the Chicago International Miniatures Show in 2018, in a class taught by Sue & Eamonn O’Rourke. The class was for The Case of the Medieval Manor, and I just fell in love with the beams and structure. After struggling to determine the resident of this piece, I have come to discover that this is the Great Hall belonging to the Lord of Locksley after watching the 2010 movie version of Robin Hood. There is a huge fireplace, a large table laden food and documents, and a minstrel’s gallery with food preparation below. Much prep and woodwork go into this building, and I have SO MUCH left to do. My big splurge on this project was purchasing a sconce, two torches and a chandelier from Scott’s Lighting. I cant wait to finish bringing this piece to life!
