Workshop Box Making


The workshops for box making are given in Accra, Ghana. We work with local products as much as possible like fabrics, glue and acid free cardboard. As the availability of good quality cardboard is limited, I bring in grey board from Holland in my suitcase. ;)


What will you learn?
During workshop I will introduce the principles of Box Making. At the end of the workshop you will be taking home your very own Box.

There are 3 different levels:

·       Introduction to Box Making (Beginners’ box): you will learn how to measure and cut cardboard and how to cover the box with fabric.

·      Intermediate level Box Making (Tea/Sewing/Jewelry box): you will learn a more intrinsic technique of box making and how to make dividers

·       Advanced level of Box Making (two-tier Jewelry box): how to make a ‘two tier’ box with a tray

·       Picture frames: make two sets of picture frames in one morning, for picture size 10x15cm and 13x18cm (portrait)
