Lena Corwin's Made by Hand: A Collection of Projects to Print, Sew, Weave, Dye, Knit, or Otherwise Create Cover


Synopses & Reviews

Publisher Comments:

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 re-creates 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. In total, there are 26 lessons/projects, all presented with step-by-step photos and illustrations.

Praise for Lena Corwin's Made By Hand:

"I got a sneak peek at a mostly lovely book. I can't contain my excitement over this book. The projects are varied and so much fun." -The Stylish Nest

"The photography and layout of the book is gorgeous: wide open with lots of white space, reminiscent of Japanese craft books. And there are people, whole people, sitting and doing crafts, not just disembodied hands. Isn't that part of the reason we craft-for the human contact?"

"Made By Hand is gorgeous . . . filled to the brim with beautifully executed diy tutorials from a host of talented artisans." -Michelle S Blog

"Craft book is like a private studio class . . . this book is a breath of fresh air"

"As brilliant as it is beautiful!" -The Purl Bee

"The diversity of offerings within these pages makes you feel like you're at a retreat with too many good things to choose from . . . except you get to make them all! The photography is clean and simple. Gorgeous-really. This is a good one, folks . . . and Lena-you've done it again." -maya*made

"Even if none of you know where to begin, you can easily use the projects in this book as a guidebook . . ." -Urban Comfort"

"A must-have if you want to stretch your creativity and get your hands dirty-literally." -Big Cartel

"It boasts stunning visuals with simple imagery." -The Capsule Show

"Made by Hand introduces readers to ageless crafting techniques with modern projects.

"The 26 delightful projects are scrumptiously photographed as step-by-step tutorials, creating the impression that we, too, are in the light-filled studio among the generous and pleasant makers . . . all of these carefully curated projects will result in products that are perfect in their own unique way."

"We have been fans of designer/illustrator/author�Lena
