Victorian Model Workshop


Established in 1990 The Victorian Model Workshop designs and builds animatronic figures, automatons, stage props, puppets and mechanical displays for commercial customers and private collectors.

We are one of only a handful of workshops in the country which opens its’ doors to the public – so if you’d like to see our work, feel free to drop in and say hi.

We are based in the lovely Ferrers centre for arts and crafts, in Staunton Harold.

This splendid courtyard building of brick and slate was built as stabling for the fifth Earl Ferrers between 1760 and 1780. Today, it’s transformed and become home to over 15 different organisations, including us!

We are just next door to the Staunton Stables Tearooms, and we are open Tuesday to Sunday, 11am – 5pm (but we close earlier at 4pm on Sundays).
