Writer and maker Chris Gardner created ManMade as an opportunity to explore the emerging independent craft movement through the lens of the postmodern male. ManMade takes the movements in gender equality and inclusivity seriously - the “man” isn’t a generic term lumping together men and women. Instead, ManMade recognises that all sorts of creative outlets can be realised by, for, and with men. Rosie can rivet, Chris can craft, and all demographics can DIY!
ManMade features original how-to content, videos, and design inspiration created by both women and men. It’s for anyone that says “Hey, I can do that”, and believes that sewing machines and tablesaws alike belong in the workshop. Our current era allows for an entire new spin on what it means to live the handmade life, and ManMade wants everyone to know: they’re invited.
