Introduction to Boxmaking | Bari Zaki

from 175.00

Instructor: Bari Zaki.

Date: Saturday, July 20 — 11am – 2pm

What you’ll make: This box is perfect for holding postcards or photos. Classic archival construction protects your paper treasures.

Each student will construct a box from pre-cut pieces of binders-board. You’ll cover your box with a combination of Japanese bookbinding fabrics & papers, and tie it off with a lovely ribbon. Voilà! Your tray and cover will need to press overnight, which we’ll explain how to do at home.

By the end of this class you will have one completed box, plus the confidence to make more at home, thanks to our charming illustrated handout with step-by-step instructions. We look forward to sharing our love of papers & boxmaking with you in this three hour workshop!

Class fee includes all materials we use to make a box: binders-board, glue brushes, PVA adhesive, Japanese papers, bookbinding fabrics, Italian cotton ribbon, Xacto blade, bonefolder, scissors, ruler, triangle rulers.

Class Size: 3 students. (Also offered 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.)

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 fabric, papers & boxmaking with you in this three-ish hour workshop!
