The bride’s box was a matrimonial custom given as a gift to hold keepsakes for special occasions. These boxes were beautifully adorned with many different hand painted designs. Students will decorate their own bentwood maple box using stencils and freehand painting to personalize a box using designs and patterns with a Nantucket Theme. The box is a generous size of 15 x 9 x 7.5 tall. All materials supplied.
