Norwegian Bentwood Boxes
March 21-27, 2010
Scandinavian Heritage Week
Instructor: Chris Schleier
Tuition: $527.00
Learn to construct Norwegian-style bentwood boxes. These are fine oval boxes similar to Shaker boxes, but much more open to personalizing or decorating. Some chip carving and inlay will be covered. Expect to make at least two boxes and learn how to continue at home. All levels welcome.
