Summary "In the age of big box stores and mass production, there are still artists and craftspeople who make beautiful things by hand. Colourful quilts, hooked rugs, and stained glass. Resilient dories and snowshoes. Whimsical whirligigs. In this book, Don MacLean explores the traditional crafts of Atlantic Canada, visiting dozens of creators in their workshops, galleries, and homes, giving insight into their process and inspiration. MacLean interviews Dora Gloade about Mi'kmaw bead- and leatherwork. He talks to Yvette Muise about preserving the Cheticamp hooked-rug tradition. He speaks to a luthier and a jeweller. There is an irresistible allure to items that are carefully, lovingly, made by hand, whether they are carved from wood or painted on canvas, and MacLean's book explores that. Includes over two dozen photos taken by the author."-- Provided by publisher.
