What We Do

Cardboard Bags and Boxes workshop November 2013

Clare brought along a selection of her plaited bags & boxes - some highly colourful, others more muted & a briefcase constructed entirely from newspapers. After a brief demo & some useful tips we got started constructing  with our pre-painted/printed cardboard strips.

Luckily Elaine brought her guillotine which was a great aid in cutting. To make integral handles Clare had brought some lengths of plastic tubing & tape. Finally a stitched sandwich border was added.  By the end of the session most members had completed or nearly completed their pieces.  A relaxing and enjoyable day was had by all thanks to Clare.
