For thousands of years humans have incorporated small containers into their lives as tokens, spiritual pathways, sculpture, idols, and practical storage of things.

Learn the ins and outs of design, elements and fabrication of miniature boxes. This class will incorporate many techniques to create small intimate containers. Traditional forms (square, round) as well as micro shell forms will be demonstrated. Many texturing styles will be incorporated as well as mechanisms for closures. The tiny containers can be wearable or tabletop sculptures. Students will be responsible for materials and some tools, forming tools will be provided.
