    In this age of ‘ever more’ and ‘ever faster’, Do Make sets out the powerful case for slowing down, reconnecting our senses and building confidence to take on new challenges. Pick up this book, make a cup of tea and take a journey away from screens and obligations to one of making, trees and surfing. You might find it leads to a whole new perspective on this beautiful world we inhabit.

    A powerful, soulful little book. Like a seed, it keeps growing. Deceptive in its size and brevity, you can read it quick or slow. Take the slow and savour.
