"Inside the Box" - HERTEL

with Sharon Payne Bolton

Come join mixed-media artist Sharon Payne Bolton for a jam packed day of creating in her studio in The Historic Arsenal in Benicia, California. She will guide you as you create a double door drop spine box similar to her HERTEL box that was featured in the Somerset Magazine May/June of 2018. After building your box and installing your hardware, we will then design the inside with cubbies and shelves using an array of techniques, papers, paint, found objects and created objects.

All the tools and materials you will need to create your box will be provided. You don’t have to bring anything. Sharon will also provide access to a generous selection of paper ephemera, nautical charts and found objects from her personal collection, for you to use in creating your box. 

Kit Fee of $25 includes all you need to complete your box.

All experience levels are welcome. Come treat yourself and join the fun!

Please bring a sack lunch.



I've been wanting to tell you how immensely grateful I was for your class last Sunday. It was 100 percent wonderful and you were a truly encouraging guide. Your studio and beautiful work left me in awe.



The class was so much fun, you make it so worthwhile with your positive creative vibrant energy!

Thank you for offering such a special class.
