Box Making Workshop

Yesterday I taught a box making work shop for one of my craft groups. Since we moved back to Singapore, I haven't done many workshops, mostly because I was a bit tired of them.  In Shanghai I used to do at least one, sometimes up to three full day workshops a week. At the moment I'm enjoying more time to do my own thing, especially quilting. But I really enjoyed teaching this very enthusiastic group. 

Busy ladies at work.
The end results. Everybody was happy with their day's work. 
One of the ladies came with her fabric embroidered (on her Bernina 830). Isn't it gorgeous? 

Cheers

Wow, those are beautiful. I've made lots of boxes in my day, but never using fabric as a cover. Impressive...I'd love to hear more about the process. Did you cover chipboard, pressboard, wood?

Smiles,
Kelly

What a fun class! I am going to be in Singapore sometime in the summer. My husband goes on business and is taking me with him. He has been there before and says I will love it. Are there many fabric shops? I am so thrilled I found your blog.

Lynda said...

So many lovely boxes! Love them all. What a great talent you can share.

Linda said...

Oh wow! These are gorgeous! I'm so impressed that you know how to make them, and can teach others to do so too. They're really wonderful. And you're quite talented!

Wundervoll sehen diese Boxen aus. Du gibst Kurse? Das finde ich klasse. Ich habe keine Ahnung, wie man solche Boxen macht.
Die Stickerei mit den Tieren genau plaziert. Das ist aber bestimmt auch nicht einfach.
richte meine Bewunderung aus.
liebe Grüße

Ohmygosh -- that embroidered box is gorgeous! I'd love to just be able to visit with you for a day -- your life sounds so very interesting!!!

Hilde said...

Oh Vreni, I only saw your posting just now! This looks awesome! Maybe this is going to be continued and more ladies will get the 'creative boxing bug'!

I was one of Vreni's " students" on the day and can only say she is a brilliant teacher.
We all had a fantastic time and everyone was thrilled with their own work--isn't that a compliment to the teacher?
And yes, some of us have got the bug and want to do more.
