Do Make has now been out in the world for a couple of months, since publication day on the 3rd of September. I’ve never considered myself a writer, so it has been quite a journey to take something from a conceptual dream, right the way through to a finished, printed and published book.
It began when I headed up to Cardigan, on the wild west coast of Wales, to run a couple of handplane workshops for the wonderful folk at the Do Lectures in 2015. Having known about the Do Lectures for a number of years, I was honoured, excited and incredibly nervous to head up and help them deliver a memorable weekend for all their guests.
The weekend is full of energy, with inspirational, moving and heartfelt talks, plenty of activities to get stuck into, incredible live music and some of the best food and drink I’ve ever tasted, all wrapped together on the idyllic home farm of the Hieatt’s.
