Isn’t it time that making your own clothes and shoes meant your wardrobe looked more Prada than Primark? And that upcycling your furniture meant transforming your home into somewhere stylishly cool and unique and not a third-rate Good Life?

Perri Lewis is here to teach you the new rules of crafting, with interviewsand tips from some of the world’s greatest makers – Lisa Stickley, Rob Ryan and Kaffe Fassett among many more – and projects to get you started.

Friends will cajole, beg and order you to say where you bought that fantastic necklace/pair of shoes/dress. They’ll never believe it when you say you made it yourself.
