Boxes, Slipcases & Clamshells

Do you have an artist’s book that needs something more? Or perhaps a series of prints that need a container? In this workshop, students will create protective box, slipcase, and clamshell structures for existing books, works on paper, small sculptural objects, or keepsakes. We’ll cover material methods and proper building and covering techniques. Students will cut and measure all of their own materials. They will leave with solid skills to add to their own practice and comfort building boxes and and other housings for different kinds of items. All levels. Code 01B
