1. Events 2. exhibitions
Miniatura began in 1983 as a place for miniaturists to get together and enjoy their hobby. A place where craftspeople and collectors could meet and celebrate the best of the miniatures hobby. The organisers have always put this sentiment at the heart of the show. It is very much for miniaturists and by miniaturists, even now we find ourselves at the National Exhibition Centre it is still our mission to support and grow the hobby above all else.
3D2D's core activity is organising events that provide makers, designers, craftworkers and artists with venues where they can exhibit their work and sell directly to the public. The origins of the organisation go all the way back to the 1980s. The first fairs were held in Edinburgh in the Assembly Rooms. Fairs in Glasgow began soon after, with other cities and venues added later. Since then 3D2D has established a strong, reliable reputation for quality and diversity with both the public and potential exhibitors.
