The Tool Box

May 30 @ 10:00 am May 31 @ 1:30 pm

Instructor: Nancy Akerly ( artist bio )

Venue: Online (Zoom)

Dates: Thursday & Friday, May 30 & 31, 2024

Time: PT, 10 AM – approximately 1:30 PM, including breaks; classroom doors open at 9:50 AM

Skill Level: Some Box-making Experience Necessary

Class Description:
The Tool Box is both practical and beautiful – the best kind of functional art!
Long enough to hold a 12” ruler, deep enough to hold spools of waxed lined thread, with space in both the lid and the divided box to keep tools handy. You will be able to make your own decisions about where (or if) you want to divide the main box, and what kinds of tools, if any, you would like to store on the inside of the lid. Construction is based on the same principles as a Tower Box and uses basic box making techniques. Covered with book cloth and beautiful, strong Chiyogami papers and latched with a metal hook, this sturdy Tool Box is built to last! 

Class Kits: Class materials kits will be sent by the instructor. Shipping costs and kits are included in the class price.*

Tools & Supplies: To be announced in SDBA Welcome Letter, 2 weeks prior to class
