Description

Hungry for creativity? Build your own Bento Box filled with art in this jam-packed workshop. We will be making a series of projects, small in size but big in impact, that will each nest inside its own container – think tins, boxes, bags, etc. Each of these will in turn be placed and housed inside one larger box, creating a very special treasure chest. Your unique art pieces will include some combination of handmade books, paintings, collages, assemblages, scrolls, wraps, shrines, and more. In the end, the process of opening and exploring the contents of the box becomes a magical part of the art.

Materials fee covers:
-Base material for individual projects (could include paper, fabric, book board, wood panels, etc.)
-Needles and thread
-Rubber stamps to share
-Assorted mixed media mediums

Level Intermediate and above
