Craft: Making fabric boxes

We will be learning how to design and make fabric covered boxes using a simple technique based on 19th Century French Cartonnage. No sewing is required and it is suitable for absolute beginners.

During the class you will be able to make a notepad cover, a small lidded box and a lidded box with divided sections and a drawer. Kits of pre-cut card will be available but we will discuss how to design and cut your own boxes at home. You will bring your own fabric choices to cover the boxes. There will be a small charge on the day of £8-£10 for the kits, bookbinders glue, brushes and rollers.
