Simple Keepsake Box | Bari Zaki

from 185.00

Instructor: Bari Zaki. Currently offered only as a private or semiprivate three-ish hour class. No previous boxmaking experience necessary. To request a date & time, add this class to your cart, and then email bz@barizaki.com with your preferred date(s) and time of day.

What you’ll make: This flat-lidded box is a pleasing cube (3 x 3 x 3"). Handy for all manner of small desk accessories, from erasers to washi tape and, of course, paper clips. Elegant for keys. Smart for jewelry.

Each student will construct a box from pre-cut pieces of binders-board. You’ll cover and line your box with Japanese papers, and then embellish the lid with a button or two from Soutache, just two doors down. (We’ll take a brief intermission during class for button selection.) Voilà!

You will finish pressing your lid and inset-piece at home overnight, which we’ll demonstrate how to do.

Class fee includes all materials we use to make a box: binders-board, glue brushes, PVA adhesive, Japanese papers, Xacto blade, bonefolder, scissors, ruler, triangle rulers, and, last but not least, buttons.

Our studio is light-filled, airy, and organized. You are welcome to browse our extensive library of books about bookbinding, calligraphy, and drawing. We look forward to sharing our love of papers & boxmaking (& buttons) with you in this three-ish hour workshop!
