The second and third weekends in October I will be teaching two container-making workshops at Binders. The first is a keepsake box, the second a collapsable container. I have made many of these for myself and others and if you've taken my classes, you've seen me use them! They are fun to make, beautiful to use and highly functional.
Weekend workshops cost about the same as taking a 6-week class, only the 14 hours are all compacted into a full weekend of intense play and instruction, rather than divided into six short evenings.
Read on for more info below. Fun fun fun!

This little box is perfect for a man or woman looking to hold their favorite trinkets, stationary items, craft supplies, card decks and scoring pads, buttons, jewelry or cufflinks. The button closure is optional, as are the inner dividers. Build little feet for the bottom of your box as high as you like and tie it closed with any kind of elastic, leather, clasp or button. This box is very versatile. All the supplies you need to make this structure can be purchased at Binders right before the workshop. Our workshops are fun and fast! We'll have 2 full days to create your project and time permitting; we'll create a circular paper ornament and a miniature origami holiday tree.

This container, designed by Lisa Ellerin, has six sides and a hinged base that enables it to fold flat. It's sturdy and lightweight and is made of 2-ply chipboard and covered in decorative Washi Paper. All the supplies you need can be purchased at Binders right before the workshop. Our workshops are fun and fast! Make a big one to hold pens/pencils, brushes or paper scraps. Make a tiny one for q-tips or hairpins! Make a set of 3 or more and nest them together on your work surface to make a "hive" of sorting containers.
