Debra will demonstrate and teach you how to make an A4 size solander style box.

These boxes are covered in book cloth and can be lined inside with book cloth or decorative paper, or felt.  These boxes are very good for protecting your special bindings and are a great presentation box. We will make a box to hold A4 paper so you can use it to store documents.

Bring aprons and any special hand tools you normally use, but all materials and equipment required will be provided.

The cost of the workshop is subsidised by the Guild as it is a beginners workshop, and no previous experience required.

Cost is $60.00  prepayment and registration required.    However there will be a cash payment required of $10.00 for the materials.

Registration essential     on right side bar
