About the course:

Saturday 28th & Sunday 29th May          11.00am – 5.00pm


Over the course of a weekend, you will learn how to make a bespoke clamshell box from scratch. The box can be any size up to A4 and made to house an object, book or collection of prints of your choice.

You will begin by learning how to measure and construct the trays that will hold the content. Then you will go on to cover them with your choice of coloured book cloth, line them with beautiful decorative paper and finally make the outer case that will hold it all together.


The course is ideal for those who already have some book binding experience. The focus of the course is to expand your craft and technical skills and to give you the confidence to make your own presentation boxes at home.


Cost: £140.00 / £120.00 members
