Lena Corwin's Made by Hand - A Collection of Projects to Print Sew Weave Dye Knit or Otherwise Create
Publisher: STC Craft
“Opens up possibilities for dozens of skills, from printing to origami, from soap-making to patchwork; tie-dying, weaving, embroidery, and more.” —Foreword Reviews
In 2009, tastemaker and bestselling author Lena Corwin turned the top floor of her Brooklyn brownstone into a studio and began hosting classes for local crafters. In Lena Corwin’s Made by Hand, she recreates and builds upon her popular workshop series in order to reach crafters in Brooklyn and beyond. For this “best of” collection, she has chosen expert teachers and her favorite projects: Jenny Gordy introduces us to knitted socks and elegantly sewn tops and dresses; Cal Patch teaches how to make a modern embroidery sampler as well as a braided rag rug; and Corwin herself presents her favorite screen-printing and stamping techniques. There are many lessons/projects, all presented with step-by-step photos and illustrations. Notice: For usability reasons, the digital edition of this book does not include all of the images found in the physical edition.
