Traditional Shaker Boxes Unpacked

November 1, 2019 – November 7, 2019

Heather Ashworth

The Shaker box is an elegant yet efficient utilitarian box requiring minimal materials and equipment to produce. In this workshop students will make a series of individual and nesting boxes, trays and carriers. During class students will discover a variety of finishes including milk paint as a traditional Shakers finish and other options for more natural ones. Techniques and skills presented will include a brief history of Shaker boxes, preparation of bands for a successful bend, intricacies of proper bending, the process of building a box onto itself, and basic tool skills and finishing techniques. Open to all skill levels.




COURSE FEE: $675
