Just a quick reminder: Susan Mills will be teaching a two day box making workshop in Saskatoon, December 2nd and 3rd, 2017.
Build a classic “clamshell” book/portfolio box the first day. This storage box completely encloses the protected item and can be custom fitted to any size. Consisting of 3 basic parts – the lower tray, the upper tray and the outer case – it requires precise measuring and cutting. The boards will be pre-cut allowing for a positive box experience.
On the second day, you will make a hinged case. Japanese books are traditionally stored in hinged cases that fold around one or more volumes. This box is a variation of the book case. It can be made small (jewelry) or large (quilt) and can be made of many materials. Construct a prototype box as a basis for future boxes and cases – and – measure and cut all the boards by hand.
All materials and the use of tools are included.
Susan Mills has been binding books, making boxes, and and teaching these techniques for a quarter century! She is on the faculty of Nova Scotia College of Art and Design in Halifax.
