Event Details

Participants of this one-day workshop will learn the skills to build by hand a box suitable for storing, archiving and presenting books, prints and anything that needs safe-keeping. Originally invented for use at the British Museum to catalogue their natural history collection, the Solander box or case has become a popular box construction with a wide array of uses.

Suitable for all abilities including beginners, with all materials and tools provided. Participants will leave with their own hand-made Solander box after the workshop.
