Ever wondered how to protect your books or precious objects? This class will give you an introduction to the vast field of box-making and its broad spectrum of applications.


In this workshop, students will learn how to make a partitioned box with a hinged lid. We will create a box using archival book-board covered with book cloth and decorative papers of your choice.


On the first day, various boxes and their applications will be showcased. We will continue with constructing and covering the base. The next day, we will construct and cover the outer lid and attach it to the base. Some bookbinding or box-making experience is helpful but not necessary. 

Time permitting you can plan and cut pieces for a box that you can finish at home.

Har du noen gang lurt på hvordan du kan beskytte bøkene dine eller dyrebare gjenstander? Dette kurset vil gi deg en introduksjon til de mange måtene å lage en boks og dets brede spekter av bruksområder.


På dette kurset får deltakerene mulighet til å lage en boks med skillevegg og hengslet lokk. Vi lager en boks ved å bruke arkivbestandig papp, dekket med sjirting og dekorativt papir etter eget valg.


Den første dagen får du en introduksjon til ulike bokser og deres bruksområder. Vi fortsetter dagen med å konstruere og kle inn selve boksen. Dagen etter konstruerer vi og kler inn omslaget og fester det til boksen. Litt bokbindings- eller bokserfaring er nyttig, men ikke nødvendig.


Dersom det er tid til overs, kan du planlegge og kutte deler til en boks som du kan gjøre ferdig hjemme.
