Join the author for a chat on creativity, practice and working with our hands in this digital age. Handmade is a series of stories about the value of curiosity, and the need for failure and forgiveness in any journey to becoming a master. The book is for anyone interested in doing creative work today. Part memoir, part stories from the bench, it speaks to the artist inside us all.
