Budding Artist Spends Almost 100 Hours per Month Building Mini Pubs and Shops

A budding artist has spent 100 hours per month building miniature pubs and shops from across the country.

Bunty Marshall has an incredible eye for detail, crafting lifelike replicas of pubs, cafes, churches and landmarks which hold a special meaning for each of her clients.

The café manager from Leeds can spend up to 30-40 hours on one piece of artwork, usually working on around three a month – showing the level of detail required.

Carefully sculpting the majority of each piece by hand Bunty also designs parts – including windows – to be generated in a 3D printer and has faithfully recreated around 10 locations so far, with 20 new projects underway. Most feature unique additions, usually highlighted by her clients – whether it’s the addition of a piece of custom music playing through a music box or a reproduction of a location close to their heart.

She said: “After I posted them I had loads of people getting in touch, asking me if I could make places that were special to people – ‘could you do our wedding venue, our old house, the coffee shop we met at. I think a lot of it has to do with people’s nostalgia for buildings during lockdown as well. I think that’s what has fuelled the fire because people missed these places and there’s so much emotional attachment to them. Every piece I have done has amazing memories attached to it.”
