MASU BOX & STORAGE BOOK WORKSHOP & OPEN HOURS
February 18, 1:00 pm - 4:00 pm
The Masu Box (translated as ‘measurement box’) is a simple origami structure, made of paper. This square box can be used to wrap gifts or store objects, but it can also be adapted with simple bookbinding techniques to make sculptural book objects. In this workshop we will begin with a box and a lid, and we will play with these paper elements to create books that can house images or small objects and be explored by hand. With Amanda D’Amico. $35, discount for members. Register in advance at www.phillysoapbox.org/register-for-workshops.
