  In 2009, tastemaker and bestselling author Lena Corwin turned the top floor of her Brooklyn brownstone into a studio and began hosting classes for local crafters. In Lena Corwin’s Made by Hand, she re-creates and builds upon her popular workshop series in order to reach crafters in Brooklyn and beyond. For this “best of” collection, she has chosen expert teachers and her favorite projects: Jenny Gordy introduces us to knitted socks and elegantly sewn tops and dresses; Cal Patch teaches how to make a modern embroidery sampler as well as a braided rag rug; and Corwin herself presents her favorite screen-printing and stamping techniques. In total, there are 26 lessons/projects, all presented with step-by-step photos and illustrations.

“Even if none of you know where to begin, you can easily use the projects in this book as a guidebook . . .” ―Urban Comfort

"A must-have if you want to stretch your creativity and get your hands dirty―literally.” ―Big Cartel

“It boasts stunning visuals with simple imagery.” ―The Capsule Show

Made by Hand introduces readers to ageless crafting techniques with modern projects.
―HGTV.com

“The 26 delightful projects are scrumptiously photographed as step-by-step tutorials, creating the impression that we, too, are in the light-filled studio among the generous and pleasant makers . . . all of these carefully curated projects will result in products that are perfect in their own unique way.” ―BookPage.com
