THIS COURSE IS OPEN TO ANYONE - It will start in 2021.  (it is not sold out as it is for advanced registration only.   If I have the course not open for full sale then the computer automatically says sold out - I can't control that part of the website much to my dismay)

I do not have pricing at this time as the course is still in the stitching phase, it will be more expensive than the Five Senses Double casket as the number of threads used will be higher (>$6500).  If you are interested in more information or to be put on the list to know when registration is open, please email me at tricia@alum.mit.edu.  You can put a $500 refundable deposit down right now to save a space and then make a decision at the end of 2020 and either commit or get the deposit back  If you are willing to start the class without knowing the exact cost, I will discuss it.  At this point I know about 85% of the cost for sure (casket, finishing materials, frame, linen, basic threads, etc).  I hope to have the stitching done in about 18 months for exact costing.   

There are 48 double caskets that have been set aside for new students who learned late about the Cabinet of Curiosities at this point, 19 are left

Because my cabinet maker is retiring in 2020, this course is being offered as a bundle because I would not be able to supply a casket later:

- a Double Casket

- all finishing materials needed to assemble the casket

- threads to complete the Four Seasons design (see B&W diagram) for the casket in stumpwork as well as the lid insert and the inner doors (see silk purl floral baskets).

- mirror, inkwells, and likely bottles

All you need is to provide the labor to make your dream casket.  This is the last opportunity for a double casket.  My cabinet maker has committed to the last numbers of pieces he is making and our last hardware has been cast and locks made and delivered.  

NOTE:  The video is of a different casket and not the one for this course - it is only an example of what a finished casket looks like.  The black and white drawing is the design for the course.  It will be embroidered in stumpwork.
