Artisans Tinkerbox Workshop
with Sharon Payne Bolton
& Special Guest Attendee, Jo Packham
Come join Sharon in her studio in Ketchum, Idaho for 5 days of inspiration and creativity. This unique and rare opportunity to gather and connect with each other will be an experience like no other. Jo Packham, creator of award winning magazines "WHERE Women Create" & "WHAT Women Create", will be joining us to spend a jam-packed full 5-days of creating, enjoying and making moments.
The creating only starts with your Tinkerbox. We will also be creating various books using a couple of different bookbinding techniques, including the World Famous Coptic Stitch to create Petite Books.
In this 5-day immersion workshop, Sharon will have EVERYTHING you need to create your Tinkerbox and your handmade books! There is no supply list and no tools to bring. Sharon will open her trunks of supplies and treasures for the week for you to create.
The outside of your Tinkerbox can be finished with paint, stencils, canvas, lace, velvet, and/or whatever else we dig up in the studio. Together, we will be installing hardware, including hinges, latches, handles and inside drawer pulls. We will finish the inside of your Tinkerbox with either paint, vintage newspaper, or maybe vintage wall paper? We will have the option of using molds to create your own custom emblem on the front of your Tinkerbox.
