A World of Boxes
July 31 - August 4
July 31-August 4, Monday – Friday, 10 am-4 pm
Most boxes share the same structural components: mix and match them, add a piece or take one away, and you’ve got enough box-making potential to last a lifetime…or, in this case, one intense week. What if you take a simple paper-folded box, and join it to a more substantial portfolio? How about making a 4-walled tray, a basic box element, then transforming it with a sliding door, finials, feet? Are a fragile book and a fragile object, or set of objects, housed in the same style of box? (No. We’ll talk about that.) Since boxmaking starts with learning how to measure and cut out the boards, each of you will cut out the parts for your own small edition. Meanwhile, all of us will construct several boxes based on my models, ensuring that basic procedures — measuring, cutting, covering, assembling, learning about adhesives — are practiced and absorbed.
