Making little boxes….. Creative workshop for all ages


Yesterday I tutored a creative art/craft workshop at one of the Tasmanian Regional Arts Groups in my area….. Tasmanian Regional Arts Kentish at Sheffield (town of murals). Not everyone at this arts branch wants to do painting or drawing related activities, so we try to also offer alternative creative activities to cater for all.

I am still basically a painter so I do like it when there is a link. So for me box making is perfect. I can paint my own watercolour or do Suminagashi (Japanese marbling) on a 200gsm or heavier stock, then make it into a little trinket or jewellery box.  Alternatively there is a lot of suitable, printed card stock available (as scrapbookers know).

Images below are of boxes made by attendees yesterday, which included a 10y.o lass who came with her grandmother to share a day of hands on creating.
