Box Making

August 2 @ 1:00 pm - 2:30 pm

Free

Do you like boxes? The skills students need to be able to construct a box are folding, cutting with an exacto knife and patience. Once you know the basics of making a box, you can modify it to any size to hold a book, collectibles or allow it to stand alone as it’s own piece of art.

 

We will learn how to cut bookboard with a straight edge and exacto knife, glue the pieces together, choose your favorite Japanese paper and wrap the box in it.  If there’s time, we’ll even make an additional box, one that’s made just through folding. Bring your own exacto knife and self-healing mat if you have them. Students may also bring their own bookcloth or Japanese paper if they wish. All experience levels are welcome in this workshop.
