About this event

Book Arts Workshop: Squash Blossom Box with Ginna Cullen

During this one-day class, participants will learn how to make a Squash Blossom Box. The box has 5 sides plus a lid and is a great way to use smaller pieces of paper. The basic box pattern can be adapted to multiple sizes. We will make 2 boxes and decorate lids in various ways. All materials and tools needed for the class are provided. However, if you have some interesting paper that you would like to use on your box or a utility knife that you prefer, bring those with you.

About the artist: Ginna Cullen has a Master of Interdisciplinary Studies (MIS) degree in studio art from Virginia Commonwealth University. She currently serves on the board of the Virginia Art Education Association, conducts professional development classes for art teachers (she taught art in public schools for 30 years), and in 2017 was selected as the Virginia Art Educator of the Year. Cullen is a painter and sculptural book artist and has exhibited often in central Virginia, Richmond, Washington D.C. as well as other areas of the country.
