THE CLAMSHELL BOX
March 19 and 20
Materials fee to be paid to teacher: $10
Max # students: 12
The clamshell box is the most protective container for books,
photos, prints, or any fragile materials. It consists of two
3-walled trays, mounted on a case. Precise cutting and ample
pressing time ensure its success.
In this 2-day workshop well start by constructing one small box
from my pre-cut materials. This lovely box will become your teaching
model. You will learn how to measure an object and cut the boards
and cloth, and how to construct and cover trays and build a case.
Participants will bring an object to be boxed to the class. Please
keep it relatively small (9 max. in either height or width) since
larger boxes require more space than is available, and are more
awkward for first-time box makers to produce.
