In this two-day workshop you will learn to make a box with a hinged lid and clasp. This simple yet elegant structure is so versatile it can be used as a ring box, a tooth fairy box, a pen case, a tool box and much, much more. Box-making techniques including construction of a tray, covering four-sided objects and the fitting of a hinged lid will be covered. You will walk away with a personalized box just in time for your loved one to gift for Valentine ’s Day.
