Workshop Fee: $275
Class Size: 10
Note: This class will be held online using the Zoom format, Oct 12-26, 2022 – 3 Wednesdays, from 6-8pm EST
Create a lovely display box for your favorite keepsakes. This double-walled box has a clear acrylic window inset into a cloth-hinged lid with a magnetic enclosure. The paper butterfly is held in place by magnets, so items can be changed out as desired. Together, we will build the box from a provided material kit to make a working model. Participants will learn basic box-making skills, cutting recesses for windows, embedding magnets and steel, and creating cloth hinges. We will also cover how to adjust measurements and cut materials to make custom-fit boxes for your future projects.
6 hours total (three 2-hour sessions over the 3 weeks).
