 If you haven’t yet stumbled across this series of articles jointly published by The Tyee and Rabble, then you just might be set for some interesting reading. 

Examining rise of DIY culture around the world, MakerCulture: Taking Things into Our Own Hands is a 12-part report that looks at everything from science-based projects straight out of Star Trek to how hand-made has launched new forms of political resistance and positive, effective change in communities. 

Even if you’re not craftily-inclined, the series is definitely worth taking a glance at, if only to be inspired to play with your food and learn to make a burnt Granny Smith apple finger ring

And on a related note, have you seen the Handmade Nation documentary or read Faythe Levine‘s book of the same name? I can’t say enough good things about the documentary. It’s fun, inspiring, and very thought-provoking.
