Clamshell Boxmaking

A Clamshell box is a remarkably sturdy and useful structure that can be used as an ideal housing for a portfolio of prints, photos, artist books, memorabilia, or tools. During this workshop students will construct a 6″x8″ clam shell box, and through this project, acquire the skills needed to make additional or customized box structures on their own. Students will also get to make a create “perfect bound” sketchbook to accompany their handmade box.  To allow each student to create a box that suits his or her style, we will not be providing the decorative paper that will cover each box.
