Letterboxing is a world-wide treasure hunt for craft-loving people of all ages.
Participants seek out hidden books and hand-carved stamps cleverly hidden in waterproof containers by following clues. Clues are shared on websites, newsletters and by word of mouth. Started by a group of friends in a park in England in 1850, Letterboxing now spans the entire globe–every continent, country, state and city. But–it’s still a secret! Letterboxing is crafty, adventurous, and very sneaky!
In this workshop, you’ll learn all about Letterboxing; how it’s done, where to find information, how to make a letterbox of your own, and how to share clues.
Once you become a Letterboxer, you can join in this fun, artistic, adventurous treasure hunt wherever you travel.
