Book safes are a fun and sneaky way to hide your valuables. From first glance, it appears to be a book on a shelf, but once opened, it reveals a hidden compartment for your personal belongings. In this class, you will be provided with all the materials needed to create a one-of-a-kind book safe, perfect for a keepsake for yourself, or as a special gift for a friend. An old book will be provided to you, but if you have a specific one you’d like to use, bring that along too - just make sure it has plenty of pages inside. Please note: This class requires the use of a sharp knife so parental supervision may be required for any young children wishing to attend class. About the teacher:
