Class Description:
Inspired by the Cabinets of Curiosity of past centuries, the Box of Wonders is modeled after the traditional Tower Box, but enlarged to display any number of wonderful things seasonal treasures, collections of all kinds and eclectic diverse delights. It can also provide a unique opportunity for storing various groups of objects, such as a netsuke collection, small fossils or other natural objects such as shells, miniatures, sayings, or small journals or books. The four walls contain a variety of shelves, drawers, boxes, and nooks. There is a basic structure but room for individual creativity as well. It is constructed of high quality bookboard, covered with bookcloth, Chiyogami and other strong and beautiful handmade papers. I think of this box as a family heirloom, filled with treasure of all kinds.
