DESCRIPTION

Hannah Kasper will be hosting a Lucky Sunday workshop, “Build Your Own Shoebox Theater”, Sept 20, from 2-4 pm. Hannah will discuss her influences, including the history of traditional peep boxes, and of our fascination with the miniature. Hannah will demonstrate how to make a simple shoebox theater out of a cardboard box. Everyone is encouraged to make their own.

A shoe box theater is a box that has a hole cut in one side of it (to view into) and another one cut into the top of it (to allow light to come into the box). Inside of the box is usually a still scene or environment that depicts a picture.When viewed through a peephole, perspective is created and it’s as though you’re looking into a private little world.

Hannah will provide materials but supplies are limited so it’s first come first serve.
