After many years of deliberation I finally got my backside in gear and started a YouTube channel! The first video is now live, go check it out to see a good summary of the work I have done over the years and plans for the future.
The channel will have tutorials on different sustainable crafts I’ve learnt over the years along with tips and tricks. It will also serve as my vlog to keep you all upto date with the projects I’m currently working on.
You can watch the first video below:
If you like what you see, please like and subscribe! I’m hoping to get a new video out each week, so if there is anything you would like to see, let me know in the comments.
Here’s a new technique I tried out. I found a chair that was missing a seat and I was considering making a wooden seat with upholstered cushion. Then I had the idea to weave a seat instead.
Belts made a perfect medium for this project. Not only are they strong and durable, they’re the perfect size to weave around a chair seat. I made this without cutting one belt. All of the belts are also woven underneath the seat and buckled together. This way, if any of the belts need replacing over time, it’s really easy to do so, without any tools at all!
I see vinyl records all the time at car boot sales, and a lot left behind after not being sold. There will always be a market for the classics, but the rest are destined for landfill. I used a laser cutter to cut out these designs.
