MAKE:DAY

makeday_button.jpg“ In these challenging times we need to learn, or re-learn, how to do a lot of the things we have been able to buy. As we move from being solely consumers we will need to nurture a DIY ethic, to value re-use and we will have to be a lot more resourceful. Its time to skill up for the power down.”
