Kate Smith always enjoyed the sense of fulfillment that came from making and mending things herself, so when she sensed a veritable craft revolution in the air, she decided on a radical career change and founded The Makery in 2008. It’s now a thriving creative hub in Bath, where people flock to learn new skills such as embroidery, quilting and upholstery, in a relaxed and welcoming environment.
Now Kate and her team have distilled the essence of The Makery into a stylish book, indispensable for any resourceful household. The 30 achievable projects include adornments for the home, elegant things to wear and original gift ideas. They’ll save you money and liberate you from dependence on big faceless corporations: if you can make it yourself, you won’t need to buy it, and if you can mend it, you won’t need to replace it. Join us to celebrate in celebration of all things crafty, and celebrate a local business that’s fast becoming a well-loved institution.
