The Maker provides inspiration and information for mastering your chosen craft and using these skills to create individual interiors in a home.

'What can I craft with my own hands that will make my space special?' In this book filled with inspiration, advice and projects, Tamara Maynes shows you how to achieve an intimate connection with your home by mastering your craft, bringing raw materials to life and creating an original space that bears your unique fingerprint.

Drawing on her own practice and the work and musings of many she admires, Tamara hopes to stir 'the maker' in every reader; to encourage them to connect deeply and bring comfort, beauty and individuality to their home. The Maker celebrates those who are already 'good with their hands', while offering membership to those who want to join the club. It shows how to craft a space and 'make' a home, in the most perfect sense.
