Clam box making with Carole King at Stiwdio 3

The pencil box opens out into a tray so you can easily find and remove exactly what you need.


Carole King will teach you how to make two beautiful clam shell boxes.

In the morning you will make a pencil box that holds everything you need and opens to create a handy tray which makes it easy to choose the right pencil while keeping them together. The finished box will be 23 cm long with sides of 7cm.

In the afternoon you will make a second smaller box for storing small precious things. This one will be a bit fiddlier because it is smaller but you’ll have had a run up to it making the larger pencil box in the morning. This smaller box measures approximately 5.5cm x 5.5cm x 1cm closed and 11cmx11cmx5.5cm when open.

Both boxes are covered with your choice of handprinted papers and completed with book cloth and a ribbon closure to keep everything good and safe.

Cancellation and a full refund can be obtained up to 4 weeks before the course starts. Start dates may be amended on request.
