Making a Life
Author: Melanie Falick
Working by Hand and Discovering the Life You Were Meant to Live
Traveling across continents, she met quilters and potters, weavers and painters, metalsmiths, printmaker, woodworkers, and more, and uncovered truths that have been speaking to us for millennia yet feel urgently relevant today:
We make in order to slow down. To connect with others. To express ideas and emotions, feel competent, create something tangible and long-lasting. And to feed the soul.
With revealing portraits and gorgeous original photographs, Making a Life captures all the joy of making and the power it has to give our lives authenticity and meaning.
