During this eight-day intensive course, you’ll have the chance to learn from the great Italian cabinetmaker Vasko Sotirov. You’ll learn about designing and creating a delicate keepsake box with a hidden mechanism.

Simple on the outside but ready to surprise when opened, the box will be deeply saturated with details, from the elegant proportions and careful wood selection to a parquetry motif to be unveiled and a secret compartment to be discovered.

It is an exercise to chase perfection and a display of technical abilities.
