Woodworking, handicrafts -the rewards of creative practice, bringing something new and meaningful into the world through one’s own vision, make us fully alive. How does the making of objects shape our identities? How does creative work enrich our communities and society? What does the process of making things reveal to us about ourselves? The author poignantly probes for answers in this book that is for the artist, artisan, crafter, do-it-yourselfer inside us all.
