One thing we know for sure is that we get a wonderful sense of peace out of making things. It even—and sorry if we sound terribly goody-two-shoes here—makes us feel happy. Of course you can buy the most gorgeous handmade products in equally gorgeous shops. And all over the world you can find great craftspeople and artisans. But regardless of that, there is nothing better or more satisfying than making something yourself. At home, with your very own hands. And so we thought of a new special: Flow Make it yourself.
A large book full of DIY-projects of 26 creatives from all over the world. With step-to-step explanations to help you get started: from a shelf of used wood to a crocheted ba, and from a pop-up garden made of paper to a mini-doll with matching outfit. Including all patterns you need and of course many extra’s and paper goodies such as colored paper, DIY-labels and –stickers.
A few of the projects you’ll find inside:
- A painted plate

- Patterned tiles
