a  manifesto for making

a zine

a call to arms, to hands, to legs and minds

to shears and screwdrivers, needles and knives

and fabric and fruit, with yarn and clay

and sun, and soil, and night, and day

A Manifesto for Making is my first zine. My manifesto is a lyrical celebration and interrogation of both joy and frustration, of the ways we we use our bodies to make things anew. I invite you to challenge yourself to make something unexpected and unordinary, and something useful and intricate. Everybody can make something or another, and this zine asks you to try.
