STORE Store Makers Manuals 


STORE Store have commissioned a selection of exciting designers to create a bi-weekly series of downloadable manuals for objects you can make at home. A new manual will be uploaded to STORE’s website every other Wednesday from the 15th April until further notice.


Projects include: Tie Dye socks by Lauren MacDonald, Sugar Shapes by Marco Campardo and Bird Feeders by The Bakerloos. Participation is free and no design background is necessary.


To help evolve your new skills further, STORE Store are asking you to share your creations; they will then pick their favourite submissions and publish the results in a limited printed edition including all of the manuals. Everyone who makes it into the book will receive a copy.
