The Toy Soldier Factory visitor center, in Kilnamartyra, County Cork, offers a wide range of cast figures to paint during our workshops. These workshops are suitable for all genders, young and mature. You can select from fantasy figures like Fairies to historically accurate military soldiers to Halloween monsters.
There are also seasonal themed choices like Bunnies, Chickens, Halloween monsters, Santa Claus, Christmas trees and many more that would spice up your home. We also have Fairy doors that you can paint to provide your magical friends a home in your home or garden too.
When you pre-book your workshops we will cast the figure you chose in front of your eyes, then provide a primed version that you can paint in our spacious workshop room, with all the paints and brushes provided. You can follow the painted example if you like that inspiration or do your own thing, its your creation after all. Once completed you can take your finished masterpiece home.
PREBOOK BONUS: Get FREE popcorn when you have pre-booked your workshop.
This workshop is suitable for ages 7+ all the way up to adults. Painting a metal miniature is quite different than painting a picture, not only is the model 3 dimensional but the metal surface requires a different approach to applying paint.
You don’t need to bring anything to the factory when you visit. We will supply aprons to protect your clothes.
