The Maker provides inspiration and information for mastering your chosen craft and using these skills to create individual interiors in a home.
A pioneer of Australia's modern craft movement, Tamara Maynes works diligently as an advocate of the value of craftsmanship, good design and considered raw materials. Tamara's own making and design practice began when she was a small child, and is informed by nostalgia, colour, shape and modernity. She has produced clever DIY projects in the pages of interior magazines such as Inside Out and Real Living; crafts custom commissions for an array of creative industries; and influences aspiring makers through workshops at Megan Morton's The School. Modern craft enthusiasts also visit Tamara's online store The Six Week Boutique to indulge in her handcrafted pieces. In recent years, Tamara's work has been exhibited by invitation at both London and Milan Design Week alongside international sustainable design collective Supercyclers. Tamara lives in Melbourne, Australia, where she is also a stylist and the creative director of The Establishment Studios.
