I loved every part of the course from The Cartonnerie!

From when the supplies arrived, packed so beautifully and then to follow the instructions that were so easy to understand

- and the end result is just gorgeous.

I love my box and will definitely keep making them.

about sabrine | ARTIST & EDUCATOR


 

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'. Since then I have been designing and making boxes & folios by hand. In my studio I design all designs myself. I love a challenge, so I like it when clients have their own ideas. These assignments are the most fun!

 

The base of my designs is greyboard sheets. I cut this board to size and then assemble it. I then line the design with linen or velvet and personalize it with foil press. In this way I can design everything myself and I’m not limited by a standard size. This means that every design is unique and original and completely handmade!

 

I work with FSC certified greyboard and paper, linen made from natural fibres, water based glue and I try to recycle as much waste and packages as possible. I also separate the paper waste. I feel it’s important to contribute to the environment in a positive way with my studio and not to overburden it. I also buy a lot of products from Dutch suppliers in order to support them.

 

I love to teach you my beautiful craft!
