A ‘last chance’ opportunity to learn more about box-making from book artist/letterpress printer, Sarah Bryant, before she moves back to the US.
We learned how to transform these – a magnet and tiny metal plate; card, paper and bookcloth:
into this: a partitioned box with a magnetic closure. It makes a most satisfying snap as it closes.
And this lot:
into this: a box with a bone clasp closure on bookcloth straps.
No particular plans for using these structures right now, but I like knowing how to make containers that function well.
