box-making class
Cartonnage  is the art of making decorative and functional items out of cardboard and fabric. It originated in the 1800s in France. becoming a creative and stimulating hobby.

Using very simple and basic tools, you can make boxes of all sizes. as well as sewing kits, electronics cases, notebook cases and more.  All items will look amazing in your favorite fabrics. They make great, useful items around your home or office, and they're wonderful gifts. Everyone will ask where you found such attractive pieces. You’ll be so proud to tell them you made it yourself - in less than a half-day.

Join us for one or several classes. Before you leave, you'll get printed, easy-to-follow instructions for making the project at home. Additional kits will be for sale from the teacher after class.
