Hi, I'm Lisa Scott. Welcome to Make + Do.
I'm a multipassionate maker who believes everyone is creative at heart.
I believe the act of making something, by hand, is a calming antidote to the stress and busy-ness of daily life. In fact, I believe it is essential to good mental health, and is deeply nourishing to the soul.
I also believe that supporting handmaker micro-businesses and micro-industries is a practical way to foster creative communities and help build a resilient economy that no longer relies on the mass production of plastic crap.
I believe in recycling and in the eternal retro style of decades past (although maybe not the 1980s — that decade was a shocker!)
I believe in honouring my body by wearing well-made clothes that are made for my exact body measurements, and reflect on the outside who I am on the inside.
I believe that handmaking my own clothes contributes to a sustainable and ethical future for us all.
And I also believe in the meditative power of a good cup of tea.
