New Year, New Skill

Every year I see something that makes me think "I want to learn how to make that!" - then the busy year comes and goes without ever getting to it.

I often find the summer holidays my chance to catch up on that one thing. This year its traditional blacksmithing and knife making, in particular I'm interested in making cooking utensils.

Paid workshops are around but often very expensive and book out really quick. This led me into looking for ways I could teach myself, a short search through our collection and I found these project based books. From Blacksmithing to Kirigami there's too much to do in one summer!
