Although not our primary occupation it’s tough not to get hands dirty when exploring makerspaces and other creative environments. We’ve been lucky enough to share some of those experiences with others through exhibitions of photo essays and hand crafted creations from our Make Something collection:
Exhibitions of Creative Work:
Hynes, W. Shifting Perspectives in Craft.
