Our class has wrapped up. I have spent much of the two days since I left Penland lying down on the floor. I dreamed of boxes last night. Here is a small sampling of what my box making class accomplished in our second week:
Allison made a box for her collection of. . .
Amy’s button box (only one of her many excellent boxes) had partitions and levels.
Betsy made the most complicated box of the bunch:
Edgar specialized in secret compartments:
but also had time for this a joke:
Jamie made a housing for her prints:
And then created these adorable boxes:
each of which has a tiny pencil in a tiny drawer at the back.
Jen made the most enormous box:
And then filled it with some small things:
Larry donated a clamshell box to another course (most generous box maker) and so didn’t quite have time to finish this partitioned box:
But he did complete a number of other boxes, including this slip case.
Sara casually unveiled this box on the last day:
Yeah. It’s a shadow puppet theater.
She also left Penland with this sewing box:
and a clamshell partitioned box for her mokuhanga supplies.
Selene Created an unusual enclosure for three small books of poetry:
And also knocked out this lidded/drawer box:
And together we made this wild set of drawers to donate to the Penland Auction to support work study scholarships.
Thanks everyone for a wonderful couple of weeks! Boxes 4eva!
To Alabama today, to Delaware on Saturday, to England on Tuesday.
