DB/SoB Joint Weekend Workshops
Tutor: Midori Kunikata-Cockram
During the workshop participants will make the traditional Japanese hinged box case. This style of box provides ideal storage for various sizes and shapes of books and papers.
The basic construction is a wraparound enclosure with a 4-sided box and contains a lift-out tray.
Once students learn this style of box making, this method is practicable for wraparound case making.
