Course Description

Box making can be used to showcase your patchwork, quilting and embroidery. They can be all kinds of shapes, sizes and types of lid, but we will be concentrating on a rectangular box with a hinged lid, incorporating some foundation pieced patchwork on the lid.

We will start on the first day with learning the technique of foundation piecing. You will then incorporate this into a design for your box lid.

We will then learn the technique of how to produce a fabric covered box.
