What will I learn?

In this workshop, the first in a series of three, learn how to construct and cover a lined and lidded box, made of bookbinders board, covered in beautiful Japanese Chiyogami paper and lined with velvet paper. All materials supplied along with lists of stockists for future projects.

What do I need to bring?

The cost of the workshop covers all the materials required as well as tea, coffee, soft drinks etc.

Aprons are available for you to use however, as glue is involved, you may wish to wear clothes that can get messy!

Lunch is not provided – please feel free to bring your own (there is a fridge you are welcome to use).  There are also a number of shops and cafes a short walk away.

Don’t forget your reading glasses if you need them as there is a lot of close up work.
