Material for making these lively little boxes can be found everywhere: junk drawers, garage sales, second-hand shops, used bookstores, in the woods, at the seashore, the dollar store. In this workshop you will build and finish a box with the dimension of 4x4 inch, about 1 inch height, covered with a piece of plexiglas. The sides of the box and the cover will be covered with book cloth. A ribbon will be attached for closure. These miniature dioramas pull the viewer into a small world full of little wonders. Once the box is finished we will build a simple closure so the box is protected. 

Materials to Bring: Small objects to be used in your box, collage items, beads, pearls, coloring pens, pictures.

Optional and available at SFCB for student use during workshop: utility knife, self-healing cutting mat.
