Drop Spine Boxes: Intermediate Box Building

By The Bindery (other events)

Wednesday, July 24 2024 6:00 PM 9:00 PM CDT

Join us for an evening of handcrafted box-making.  Drop spine boxes are highly customizable and can store books, paper, objects, or other flat items. They are a great intermediate-level project for those who have made similar items in the past (or who have taken our introductory box-building course).

In this workshop each student will be provided with pre-cut supplies and will create their own drop spine box covered in bookcloth and decorative papers of their choosing. The techniques learned are directly transferable to other sizes and materials for students to apply to future projects.

This workshop is led by our colleague Melissa Wagner-Lawler and will be tailored to the group's skill level--however, previous experience with gluing small details and fine cutting is required: this class will move at a reasonably fast pace. All professional grade materials are included in this class's cost: we hope to see you there!


Masks are not required at the time of this posting, but are very welcome. This may change by the time of the class, and The Bindery reserves the right to require masks or other safety precautions at any time. Participants will be alerted to any changes prior to the workshop.

*Due to the small nature of classes and the upfront materials costs, The Bindery has a no refunds or exchanges policy. If you cannot make it for some reason, please send a friend in your stead and let us know!
