The "Impossible" Box

Welcome to 2023! We hope it will be a happy and peaceful new year for everyone. Our member from York, England, Margaret Beech, will be teaching the first workshop of the year. She will show us how to make an "impossible" box. This is a one piece box where the lid is snug fitting, but does not come completely off. Margaret tells us that it is perfect to hold a small gift or tiny book. The photos don't really show how it all works so you'll just have to sign up for the workshop to see it in action.
