Learn how to incorporate magnets into both the closure and engineering of a box. We’ll use Neodynium magnets, taking care to make these invisible and sleek, adding a magic snap to our boxes. Students will learn how to handle magnets, how to create flush magnetic inlays in board, simple box construction and how to turn in a box with both cloth and paper. Students will leave with two boxes with different mechanisms, an important tool to help with recessing magnets, and the knowledge to carry on their magnetic adventures!
Suitable for… beginners who are good with their hands
There will be a materials charge of not more than £30 for this workshop.
