Clamshell Box-Making Workshop at Filter Photo

  • Filter Photo Space 1821 West Hubbard Street Suite 207 Chicago, IL, 60622 United States (map)

Part of the Making It Work series, this workshop is focused on learning the construction of a clamshell portfolio box. Clamshell boxes can be customized to hold just about anything, but they are especially great for a clean professional presentation and solid protective housing for portfolio prints. Each participant will choose from a variety of book cloths and construct a clamshell box that has an 8.5 x 11″ tray size. Through this workshop, participants will learn the skills and steps necessary to make custom clamshell boxes of any size to enhance their professional presentation.


This workshop is limited to 8 students and registration includes the cost of materials.
