We’re feeling the first rays of—dare we say it?—spring this weekend. From a new model for craft workshops to a smart, age-old gardening technique, here are a few things on our radar:
- In praise of The Level Up Project, “committed to removing systemic accessibility barriers to, and shifting power dynamics within, our fields of craft and design,” with tiered pricing for craft workshops. Session Two runs April 19-25, with workshops on fermenting and pickling, papercraft fundamentals, texturizing wood, and more; take a look here.
- Our genius photographer friend Matthew Williams (he worked with us on all three of our books) has launched a new project called The Valley Few, offering large format limited edition photographic prints using the giclee process, which incorporates archival ink and archival substrates. Browse the collection Valley Few and follow along on Instagram.
- Just open: Radnor’s new showroom on New York City’s Upper East Side, co-curated with Elizabeth Roberts and featuring works by Ruth Asawa, Egg Collective, Workstead, and Ladies & Gentlemen Studio, plus The Triad Collection, Roberts’ first furniture collection. It’s open by appointment at 180 East 88th Street; take a look (and book a time slot) here.
- Margot let us know about this ceramic Seder plate and other well-designed pieces from Judaica Standard Time, in time for Passover later this month.
- Farrow & Ball goes West: The UK-based paint company’s new collection is inspired by California, with hues like Citrona, Salt, and Faded Terracotta.
- Hugelkultur: the “no-dig, drought-tolerant, raised-bed technique” you need to know about.
- And a hyper-efficient Moscow flat with secret storage (and a hidden kitchen).
- Bob Vila is partnering with The Money Pit Home Improvement Podcast to give away five $500 Amazon gift cards to use towards your next home or garden project; you can enter here every day through 11:59 a.m. EST on March 15, 2021 for a chance to win.
