French cartonnage is the art of crafting boxes and cartonnage designs with its origins in the 18th century.
Since 2003 I have been reinventing the artisanal savoir-faire of cartonnage
in respect of the traditional techniques inherited from the master makers of the 18th century.
Hi, thank you for your interest in my beautiful craft!
I started The Cartonnerie in 2003. I always wanted to do something creative, but I spent a long time searching for what kind of creativity, until I went to a box making workshop, also called 'French cartonnage'. I've been making boxes and cartonnage designs by hand in a traditional way ever since.
I love to teach you how to craft your own box, folder, folio & portfolio. To elevate your creative work or to learn a new craft. You can follow my academy, online courses, masterclasses & workshops. And have a look in my shop for calculators, linen, velvet, starter kits & tools!
Sabrine's courses are amazing! They are very easy to follow, along with the instruction videos and handouts. It might take some more time if you decide to create a hinged box in a different size than the course (like I did right from the start, as I wanted to challenge myself a bit having some experience in bookbinding), but she gives all information you need to know to create beautiful packaging. I truly love this craft and am inspired to keep creating more!

I absolutely loved following Sabrine's in-person workshop! It surprised me that I was able to make a luxury box in a short period of time under her guidance. I was in awe of Sabrine's knowledge and craftsmanship. She gave me tips and pointers that would elevate the end product, which is a result of her own years of experience. If you are thinking of learning how to craft a beautiful box from Sabrine, definitely do it! If you are local, or traveling to The Netherlands, I would highly recommend opting for an in-person workshop, private or as a group. I guarantee you won't be disappointed!
