NZAME – New Zealand Association of Miniature Enthusiasts began as the dream of several talented New Zealand miniaturists … who then diligently worked together to form this wonderful Association in 1980.
It has thrived and grown steadily ever since … becoming the ‘backbone’ of New Zealand miniature culture and a wonderful way of keeping talented and enthusiastic people – with a love for all that’s small – in touch and joined in a passion that reaches every corner of our country and indeed the World.
The aims of NZAME have grown over the past 42 years but its main objective stands – to promote the craft of miniature making and collecting throughout New Zealand and making it accessible to all those who are interested.
~ NZAME organises the biennial convention – held every two years in varying venues throughout NZ – with a multitude of attending traders plus members and clubs displays open to the public.
~ NZAME publishes (emailed out in pdf format & available in hard/printed copy at extra cost) a twice-yearly/biannual colour magazine for members – ‘NZAME Miniature Edition’ – filled with articles, profiles, Convention updates, special features/patterns/print outs and workshops plus member and Club news and contributions
~ NZAME also run tutor training courses throughout New Zealand on a regular basis, training miniaturists in the art and skills required to teach and tutor others – thus enhancing the skills available throughout the clubs and indeed New Zealand’s entire miniaturing fraternity.
Miniature clubs have spread in abundance all over New Zealand with NZAME’s help.
There are now 22 individually run clubs operating throughout the country. Many of these clubs have members who are also members of NZAME. Miniature making and collecting is an extremely fast growing hobby – not only in New Zealand but overseas as well.
~ NZAME helps to bring this amazing hobby to public attention with shows and displays, also its support of the clubs around New Zealand, both big and small.
~ NZAME allows and encourages miniaturists to find and use its facilities, contacts and information to enhance a hobby … that is limited only by the limits you put on your own imagination !
