Cartonnage: Desk Caddy
with Sue Bjerke
Saturday, October 14; 9am-5pm
Cartonnage or boxmaking experience helpful but not required

Make a handy three-section desktop caddy to keep pens, paper clips, and note paper at your fingertips, as well as making a pedestal caddy for your cell phone. Students will learn the basics of cartonnage design and construction using various boards, as well as the ins and outs of measuring, cutting, and applying decorative papers. Students will also learn simple variations on the basic structure that can develop one simple form into a variety of shapes and sizes. All components will be hand cut in class. This set makes a great gift.

Modern cartonnage grows out of the long standing French tradition of covering small utility containers with various decorative materials and offers a great use for marbled papers.
