Handmade boxes are not only lovely, they are also quite useful and can be used to store a range of objects, not just books. Using hard board or masonite and marbled fabric, the instructor will walk students through the basics of creating decorative boxes. Expanding on these primary box building skills, students will learn about more complex functions by adding a hatch-top and bottom drawer. This particular structure also features rounded corners giving a pleasing twist to the standard pointed corner. Everyone will leave with a multi-purpose box that is ready to use. 

With it’s rounded corners, top compartment under the hatch lid, and fabric covering, students will find this workshop is a wonderful companion to Decorative Box Making :: Box with Drawers. 

Materials to Bring: Optional and available at SFCB for student use during workshop: utility knife, glue brush.
