Classes @ Hook Pottery Paper ~ LaPorte, IN

Hook Pottery Paper ~ LaPorte, IA
JUNE 20 – 21
Clamshell box making
with Mary Uthuppru
10am – 2:30pm friday & Saturday
$165.00, includes all materials
The clamshell box, also called the solander box, is the most versatile protective enclosure for artwork, books and objects. In this two day workshop, we will construct a sturdy clamshell box using handmade paper and bookcloth that not only protects the objects inside but is a great way to present professional work. During the class, we will discuss modifying the traditional clamshell in order to accommodate unusual shapes, create divided trays, and even make secret compartments. Participants will also learn how to make their own book cloth which can be used in the workshop or saved for future projects. The clamshell box will be made to house materials that are 8 x 10 inches. If you're interested in making your clamshell box to hold materials of a different size, please say so at the time of registration.
Mary built the clam shells for the FDH Portfolio 2014.
