17C232A - The Classic Treasure Box
August 24, 2017
A class for all levels of experience! Using bookboard, beautiful papers, embellishments, and glue, create a magical treasure box, stamped with your own
unique style. Nancy will bring papers from Thailand, Japan, Argentina, Italy and Nepal but you will also make your own paste papers and you can add beads,
charms, and embellishments as you wish. You’ll begin with the basics of cutting bookboard and selecting glues that make your box strong and long lasting,
then assemble the box, with many opportunities for personalizing and embellishing. The process of box making is the same no matter what type of box you
make; the final treasure box you make is your unique design. Bring your own special papers, ribbon, embellishments and treasures to create the perfect
gift or a wonderful place to keep your own treasures.
Level: Novice and above

papers, ribbon, embellishments and treasures to personalize your box.

Nancy Akerly is a Door County paper
artist who has taught paper arts throughout the Midwestern United States, in Germany and Taiwan. When she first created her business, Liberty Grove Paper
Arts, she taught mainly Origami and Box Making, or Cartonnage. That soon led to picking up a life long enthusiasm for bookbinding and book arts - which
led to paper marbling and paste paper to use in the creation of her boxes and books. She has taught at Rhinelander School of the Arts, The Clearing, Peninsula
Art School, The Miller Art Museum, Sievers Fiber Art School, and for numerous Art Guilds and private groups throughout the Midwest. Her work has been shown
in numerous galleries, including the Hardy Gallery, and The Miller Art Museum but her main love is teaching others to create their own masterpiece of functional
art. And her teaching philosophy is "If we are not having fun, we're doing it wrong!"
