Cartonnage: Art Deco Box

with Sue Bjerke
Saturday, February 23; 9am-5pm

Modern cartonnage grows out of the long-standing French tradition of covering small containers with decorative materials, and offers a great use for your marbled papers. Make a box in the Art Deco style: an upright disc with a lid. Review the essential elements of cartonnage design and construction using various boards, as well as the ins and outs of measuring, cutting, and applying decorative papers, using a plinth, making curved sides, and making variations on design and size.
