In an age where most everything is mass-produced and technology has become the filter through which we experience much of life, there is a growing appreciation of the handmade. From scented soaps to designer jeans, leather wallets and jewelry, furniture and bicycles, we place more value in goods that were crafted by hand, feeling a human connection. Handmade Art explores the art and artists who exemplify the movement through the skill of their craftsmanship and their creative vision. With forty material experts working with embroidery and felt, paper cutting or folding, linocut stamps, clay or wood to revive old crafts or seek new ones, all the while providing helpful tips and techniques as they share the inspiration for their work.
