Boxes can be both beautiful and functional. A box can protect and extend the life of a book or artwork, form part of the overall creative concept, or it can be made for easy storage of prints, paper and objects. Avril has a particular liking for making boxes to house her books. Her quest for the best and most effective boxmaking techniques has led her to a method of construction which is easy, accurate and strong. In this workshop you will learn these techniques, and make an elegant (yet sturdy) double-walled, lidded and lined A5-sized box. Once you have made your first box it will be an easy step to customise the dimensions of your boxes to any size.

All materials are provided. If you wish you can bring you own small tools. However the bindery is fully equipped.

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.
Please wear closed in shoes.

Other Information:
The bindery will be open by 9am. Tea, coffee and biscuits will be supplied. There will be a lunch break of 30 minutes. It is recommended that you bring your lunch. There is a fully equipped kitchen adjacent to the bindery. Shops and cafes are not close.
