Workshop: Steampunk Box with Caroline lawson
Join Caroline Saturday for a day of steampunk inspiration and create this picturesque box. Caroline will supply the box, feet, corners, and paper. If you have a box you'd like to use, please bring it along. This is a workshop, so you'll have the opportunity to make this creation uniquely yours by incorporating various ephemera and metal bits you've collected over the years. Need to enhance that collection for this project? Hit your husband's tool box, you never know what treasures you'll discover. Or head to the hardware store. It's filled with aisles of metal bits perfect for this project and so many others. Other things that might work...old bottles, springs, jewelry, thimbles, buttons, subway tokens, coins, etc. You're only limited by your imagination!
You'll be using special adhesive for this project; Caroline likes Bond 527, but E6000 can also be used...just remember that it's toxic.
