This workshop is tailored for crafters who are interested to learn how to make a ladder box by using decorative papers, glue, etc. No prior experience is required, just lots of patience and enthusiasm.
During this online class, we will be making a 3-step ladder box (the final box size is approx 9cm x 9cm x 14cm). After the class, you will be able to continue making boxes in different sizes using the same technique.
You will learn how to make a box from scratch. There will be lots of cutting involved using a cutter/blade, cutter mat and a steel ruler. An email will be sent to your registered email address 2-3 days prior to the class, including:
- PDF handout
- The class ZOOM link
- A short video (approx 5 mins) about board cutting preparation
The class will predominantly consist of teacher demonstrations and explanations, and you will be able to follow along each step of the way. If you are unable to work along during the class, just watching is a good option too. The class will be recorded and you will be able to practice what we've covered on your own afterwards.
