  • A year ago the writer Vanessa Murray emailed me to see if I’d like to be included in her book about makers. Here is the result, a completely awesome, beautiful and useful book profiling 50 makers across the planet. 
I’m completely humbled and excited about being included. It not only shows off our frequently hidden faces but drills down into our processes and motivations. Each maker has a DIY detailed which has been lots of fun to read through and try. 
Thanks to @Hardiegrantbooks for publishing Vanessa’s vision and hard work. A big thanks also to my gorgeous friend Erica Lauthier for spending time with me to take the beautiful photos.
Castlemaine stockists include @cornerstoremerchants and Stonemans Bookroom. I’ve also spied it at a bunch of other fantastic bookstores around so it shouldn’t be too hard to find. 
  • A new tent bag and it’s little peg bag friend. 
Must be coming up to camping season.
