    Boxes! How we love boxes!

    During this class we will explore a variety of box options including stacking, dividing and alternative lids whilst also learning (through demonstration and practice) the all-important skills of cutting and covering. Although we will work to the same template there will be the opportunity to personalise with covering and lining materials. A beautiful selection of locally madePayhembury Marbled Papers will be available to choose from as well and co-ordinating buckram which is a sturdy book and box covering material.

    Participants will leave with one completed box along with materials, instructions and skills to extend the project into a ‘stack’.

    All equipment and materials will be provided along with step-by-step demonstration and practice.

    This is a new box making course where you will learn to make a wonderful box covered with bookcloth and beautiful Japanese chiyogami paper. The 'magic' is in it's unique opening mechanism, the lid is cleverly hinged so it opens in two directions revealing either one, or two, of the internal compartments.

    You will  learn (through demonstration and practice) the all-important skills of measuring, cutting and covering. Although we will work to the same template there will be the opportunity to personalise your box with your choice of the covering and lining materials.

     During this one day class you will learn to  make two decorative chain stitched  books, one with a hardbound cover and  the second will be bound in either leather  or 'washable paper'.

     This is a lovely and very practical binding,  it has an intricately stitched spine and  lays flat when in use making it a very  practical book. These would make ideal  notebooks, journals or sketchbooks.  There will be a range of decorative cover  papers and coloured threads to choose from.

    This course is suitable for beginners and all materials and equipment are provided.

    Stapleford Granary had easy car parking and is also close to Shelford Railway station.
