Do Make | The Power of Your Own Two Hands

Regular price

When we make things with our own hands, we connect with ourselves, the materials we use, and our physical environment. We feel grounded and centred. James Otter, a British surfer who makes wooden surfboards for a living, believes that making anything is about finding a process, trusting that process, and then finding flow. In Do Make, he shares his philosophy of making and offers guidance and encouragement. He breaks down the complex into manageable chunks - a fundamental idea for any maker – and helps us overcome ‘can’t do’ barriers and reconnect with our creative selves.

James Otter is a wooden surfboard maker living and working on the coast of Cornwall, a rugged stretch of coastline where the Atlantic meets the southern tip of the UK. He has a background in designing and making award-winning furniture.
