This course is suitable for those with some box making experience.
Good eye/hand coordination and good dexterity are necessary for this course as sharp knives are used in the cutting of board and paper.
You will be shown correct procedure in the use of these tools but good co-ordination will assure accurate cutting and prevention of injury.
Closed in shoes MUST be worn at all times.
Taking box-making beyond the basics you will construct a multi-layered box structure based on traditional designs with book board and decorative paper. With practice, these straightforward techniques can be applied to other diverse shaped and styled boxes which will look great and can be used for anything from gift boxes to storage chests for home or office.
In this workshop you will complete:
• a three-tiered box.
• learn very precise measuring and cutting of board pieces
• cover a box in beautiful decorative paper
All materials and tools are supplied at the Bindery
Tea, coffee and biscuits will be supplied. There will be tea breaks and lunch which you are welcome to bring with you or there are cafes and markets nearby.
