Traditional Artists' Methods Workshop: Make a Reliquary Box

Sunday, March 20, 2011
01:00 PM–04:00 PM

Register for this event »

Here's another opportunity to learn important skills as part of a series of workshops offered by the ever-popular Walters conservator, Elissa O'Loughlin. Inspired by the Treasures of Heaven exhibit and using mat board, glue, paper, jewels and metal foils, you will make a reliquary box to contain your treasure - a small gem, shell, lucky coin or whatever mini object you bring.

We will construct a box, cover it with decorated papers, and build a special compartment to contain your treasure. No treasure? We’ll provide a selection.

This is a two-session workshop. Your registration for this event will include both sessions:

  • March 06, 2011, 1p.m.-4p.m.
  • March 20, 2011, 1p.m.-4p.m.
