Heritage crafts and skill-building projects for kids.
Head over to our CRAFT BLOG to see my full book review and examples of projects we created inspired by Maker Camp >>>
Learn to handcraft from an experienced art educator who weaves a story of human creativity and modern tinkering, from the very beginnings of building shelters in the woods to utilizing recycled materials. From weaving and knot tying to building toy cars and junk robots, this book links techniques of the past with the present while offering the fun of making things with your own hands.
Author Delanie Holton-Fessler is a teacher, maker, and mom of two boys who has worked as a project-based learning specialist and a professional artist. She founded The Craftsman & Apprentice, a heritage craft–inspired workshop in Denver, Colorado, with the simple mission to make things with people. This is a mission we LOVE here at Mini Mad Things!
