Wee Forest Folk® is a small family business which delights in producing a line of miniatures -- most of which are mice.
Wee Forest Folk
Annette Petersen crafted her first little critter over 30 years ago. Since then, her children have learned the ways of the mice and have created their own! Each piece is a casting of an original sculpted by either Annette, Willy and Donna.
Annette's first mice were made of bread dough, which didn't last very long (nibbled by the real thing, of course!). Now, much more sophisticated methods of molding which add strength and durability to every piece is utilized.
Meticulous painting brings each one of the sculptures to life. Wee Forest Folk's talented artists have been carefully selected for their delicate hand skills. Enormous amounts of time and patience are invested in producing the line. Everyone involved takes personal pride in assuring the quality of each piece as it progresses through the many steps along the way to completion.
Wee Forest Folk® are handmade entirely in Carlisle, Massachusetts USA.
