Extreme Boxmaking


Extreme Boxmaking
with Jody Williams
Mondays: February 19, 26, March 5, 19, 26; 6-9pm

Students in this advanced level boxmaking class will design and construct their own display boxes out of bookbinders’ board, with an emphasis on creating appropriate containers for objects, images, or small books with an overall theme. The first session will feature a slide lecture and samples of artists who have used box structures. Demonstrations and discussion in subsequent classes will address hinging methods, closures, choosing materials for covering boards, and calculating board sizes for drawers, lids or doors, windows, dividers or shelves. Students will prepare their own materials, and then complete their boxes with the assistance of the instructor over the duration of the workshop.
