Hatch Top Box

  • San Francisco Center for the Book 375 Rhode Island Street San Francisco, CA, 94103 United States (map)

If you’ve been seeking an interesting and elegant way to house your book and paper structures or you’re just looking for a beautiful, non-traditional box for storing things, this workshop is your answer. Spend a day learning to construct a charming and functional hatch-top box with a bottom drawer.

Using hard board or masonite and marbled fabric, the instructor will walk students through the basics of creating decorative boxes. Expanding on these primary box building skills, students will learn about more complex functions by adding a hatch-top and bottom drawer. This particular structure also features rounded corners giving a pleasing twist to the standard pointed corner. Everyone will leave with a multi-purpose box that is ready to use.
