We Are Makers #7

Celebrating the remarkable world of crafting, we bring you an exquisite collection of artisans from across the globe, each with their own fascinating story to tell. An independent publication showcasing a wide array of wonderful, dedicated, and talented makers from across the globe. We want to share their stories, their passions and to connect them with you and each other.

Within this edition, we have collected the stories from twelve incredible makers. Hailing from Australia, we feature the incredible journey of Doug and Danika Aplin, a husband-and-wife team who own D&D Letterpress (thanks to them for the front cover picture!),

Travelling across continents to Tennessee, USA, we encounter Liam Hoffman, a passionate bladesmith who discovered his love for blacksmithing at the young age of 13. Venturing into the picturesque town of Blonay, Switzerland, we discover a gifted crafter who creates awe-inspiring ships in bottles for clients around the world. Our journey also takes us to Honolulu, Hawaii, USA, where we meet a talented wood carver specializing in chip carving and relief carving. With a background in the military, this individual is transitioning into pursuing their art full-time.
