This wonderfully calming jesmonite bowl (chalk) is made by @malgorzatabany - an artist and designer based in London - who works across a range of disciplines including sculpture, furniture and homewares. The piece is just one of a collection now on sale with @thenewcraftsmen - check out their beautiful site for more information about the newly launched collection and read more on the maker herself with a feature by @nat_melton - a perfect example of tactile minimalism 👌🏽
Loved this article title by @whatsamadder in the @guardian this month, following his visit to @makemorefest and witnessing the power of #welldoing and the little empire that @barnthespoon has carved out for himself (see what we did there? 🧐) The desk job can take its toll on people so it’s no wonder that more and more people are turning their heads to well-doing activities outside of work, OR leaving their jobs altogether to pursue maker careers... an issue explored in a new book by @craftfulness launched next month. If you missed it there was an amazing radio programme on @bbcradio4 on AI and the future of work (Morality in the 21st Century) - the discussion was around what humans would be doing when AI takes all our jobs away from us - and many believe we’ll see a resurgence in arts and crafts because humans still need purpose... silver linings perhaps :: all food for thought as we move into the next phase here...
Our campaign for Yodomo on @seedrs closes *tomorrow* - what a couple of months (!) but we’re now in a great position to take Yodomo forward over the next 12 months. A huge THANK YOU to anyone who has supported and shared the campaign, and of course all those who have invested from £16 - £50k - each and every one of you has been integral to helping us with this fundraiser. Looking forward to getting going and taking even more of the many skills and techniques of makers, artists, designers and other lifestyle talent online and letting creativity prosper ! Link remains in bio until tomorrow for anyone still interested in joining us :)
Thanks so much to all the makers and artists who came down to the Yodomo dome @makemorefest to share their skills and techniques with eager learners! Thanks to @carreducker @hanburypress @karolinamerska @by_me_katie @richard_william_rochester @fabricationshackney and all those who came by to say 👋🏼 plus @octopus_books_ @quartocreates @dobookco for our lovely little reading area which went down a treat!
Thanks to all our @yodomo.co pillow pin-ups from @makemorefest ! You were amazing and we learnt so much from you - we are all makers at heart 😍
My favourite cushion customers all festival @makemorefest - the blue steel boys! Who said ‘this is the best thing we’ve ever done!’ 😂
