CVHQ's nearest and dearest, the lovely Handmade Life, are launching a book! How very exciting indeed.
Entitled I MAKE STUFF: the beta edition, the ladies behind HML (Ramona Barry and Beck Jobson) are serious makers. Aside from being the makers of Words and Pictures and Peeps respectively, they've just made some babies and still managed to make time to make I MAKE STUFF. Phew! That's a lot of making!
Feauturing 25 makers from Australia and overseas, I MAKE STUFF asks the crème de la crème of the craft scene the big question, "Why do you make stuff?"
Expect to gain a glimpse into the lives and artistic practice of some of the world's best ceramicists, jewellers, painters, graffiti artists, toymakers, musicians, textile designers, sculptors, bootmakers, and illustrators as they speak about their craft.
To be officially launched at this Friday's bonanza Craft Cubed opening (which also features a special performance by Melbourne darlings Snawklor), I MAKE STUFF: the beta edition is currently available for purchase from here and it will most definitely be available at COUNTER very, very soon. In the meantime, keep checking the HML blog for updates.
By the way, if you haven't yet RSVP-ed to attend the launch on Friday, you better hop to it by emailing firstname.lastname@example.org your name and how many there'll be in your entourage.
