1:1 online courses box making & bookbinding

Learn how to make your own box or folio live on Zoom


In this course you will make a box with fitted lid or a folio live with me on Zoom.

On Zoom you can follow what I do by means of a camera that is placed above my work table.

You can ask me questions and I can show you exactly what I do.


The course will last approximately three hours.

By the end of the course you have completed the box or folio, and can make more on your own.


You can buy all materials and tools that we will use in an art store, or you can order them with the course,

and they will be send to you before the beginning of course.


 No previous boxmaking or bookmaking experience necessary.


If I need to cancel a course for any reason, you will be notified immediately via email and we can reschedule the course.

A cancellation from you requested at least 21 days in advance of the course, will receive a full refund.


This course can be in English or Dutch.

Hi, I'm Sabrine, the heart and creative soul of the studio!


In 2003 I decided that I want to look for a hobby, preferably something with my hands. I took a box-making class with Maria Klawer, an artist here in The Hague, and the rest is history… After a few months of practice, I came up with a name and registered my studio.


I design and make all products by hand with traditional techniques and with attention to detail. Elegant boxes & books.


All products are made with love for our planet: I work with FSC-certified suppliers, use water-based glue, separate waste and recycle materials and packages. A lot of packages leave the studio, so that's why I contribute to planting trees every year to reduce the 'carbon footprint' and increase the sustainability of the studio.
