Handmade Living. - a designer collective is a unique and beautiful hard
cover book showcasing the talents of handmade designers, artisans and
craftspeople from all over Australia. Unique in its design, the book
features over 70 gorgeous projects and inspirational ideas that both
showcase this local talent and offer readers of all handmade levels the
opportunity to create something whimsically precious and simply
Created under the umbrella of Handmade Canberra, the book is another feather in Handmade's cap, along with its phenomenally successful quarterly market and retail store in the heart of the nation's capital.
For Australian designers, the book is a wonderful vehicle to promote and market their amazing products and ideas, broadening their scope and (for many) meeting a far greater audience than they could ordinarily achieve. As much of our best handmade talent is based around cottage industry, Handmade Living. is a priceless way to help give these businesses the vital exposure they need.
Combined with gorgeous handmade projects and inspirational ideas the reader will love, Handmade Living. is quite unlike any other book published in Australia today. Handmade Canberra has been thrilled to work with designers on this book, and continues to pride itself on supporting home-grown handmade talent.
