Part of the 'DO' collection, 'MAKE', by James Otter, an award-winning wooden surfboard maker with a passion for craftsmanship, invites us to rediscover the joy of making.
We are all makers. From brewing our morning coffee to folding a paper aeroplane, we find it satisfying to create something that didn’t exist before. And it isn’t just about the outcome. Making requires us to slow down and become absorbed in the process: an antidote to our fast-paced world.
By using our hands to transform natural materials into objects of beauty and utility, we reconnect with our creativity, our environment, and back to ourselves. Learn about:
• Preparation: what to make, where and how to get started
• Process: learn to trust it and let go of perfection
• Power: develop confidence in your natural skills and ability
With incredible photography, plenty of encouragement and even a ‘how to’ guide to make your own handplane to take bodysurfing, Do Make reminds us that nothing quite beats the feeling of having made something with our own hands.
Isn’t it time to make your mark on the world?
‘Pick up this book, make a cup of tea and take a journey away from screens and obligations to one of making, trees and surfing. You might find it leads to a whole new perspective on this beautiful world we inhabit.’
Hugo Tagholm, CEO, Surfers Against Sewage
‘Whatever you aspire to make this is the perfect book to guide you on your journey.’
‘Lays open a world of possibilities, guiding the reader through the creative process of making. With beautiful images and stories, Do Make is a lovely book for those who make or want to start making.’
Sarah James, Craft Festival
