"Making a Life" by Melanie Falick
Maker Melanie Falick travels the world meeting quilters and potters, weavers and painters, metalsmiths, woodworkers and more to understand why we make things. She concludes that we make things to slow down, to connect with others, to express ideas and emotions, to feel competent.
In wonderful stories and photographs, Falick captures the joy of making and its power to give life meaning and authenticity.
