Rebecca Chamlee: 2016-17 Faculty Development Grant Report

Rebecca Chamlee Mother of All Boxes

The completed “Mother of all Boxes” box with the partitioned drawer, slipcase and cigar box.


[The grant funded my] attendance at the Mills College Summer Institute of Book and Print Technologies in Oakland, California, to participate in an intensive course in box making for artists’ books by highly regarded book artist and teacher, Julie Chen, June 5-9, 2017.

I’ve made many box structures over the years as a practicing book artist. What I hoped to gain from the workshop is better techniques for the many challenges in boxmaking: corners, hinges, drawers, partitions and closures.
