This classic portfolio style box is a very versatile structure which can be adapted to house books (or other special objects) which need protection. In this class you will be making a box to fit an A5-sized book. The beauty of the box is enhanced by decorative papers and cloth. You will have a wide range of materials to choose from.
All materials are provided. The bindery is fully equipped, but if you wish you can bring you own small tools. You can also bring any special papers you might like to incorporate.
Good hand-eye coordination and good dexterity are necessary for this course as sharp knives are used in the cutting of board and paper.
You will be shown correct procedure in the use of these tools but good co-ordination will assure accurate cutting and prevention of injury.
Please wear closed-in shoes.
The bindery will be open by 9am. Tea and coffee will be supplied. There will be a lunch break of 30 minutes. It is recommended that you bring your lunch as shops and cafes are a distance away. There is a fully equipped kitchen adjacent to the bindery.
