Making Nesting Boxes

In this class, students will learn basic skills for creating a set of lidded nesting boxes. Similar to Russian Matryoshka nesting dolls, these boxes will be fitted to each other and can be used individually or stored together. We’ll cover boxmaking basics, including how to construct and cover boxes, as well as more advanced techniques for fitting objects to each other. Nesting boxes make an excellent gift for the holidays!

Saturday, December 8 from 9:00 am to 4:00 pm
Fee: $155 plus $40 materials fee

All classes take place in our studio, 11720 Washington Place, Los Angeles, 90066
