From botanical cookies, acorn coffee and wild green pesto, to making your own calendula salve and building a bird house The Wild Craft is filled with seasonal nature-based projects designed to reignite your love of the natural world and connect you to the earth.
Each of the four seasons is divided into three sections: In The Kitchen, Making and Gardening. Every project will celebrate the wonder and beauty of nature and encourage readers to slow down and reconnect to the wild in a holistic and gentle way. With step-by-step instructions throughout, Catarina Seixas will take you through each project, so that even beginners can enjoy the mood-boosting benefits of a craft-filled year.
Peppered with information on seasonal plants to look out for and stunning photography, The Wild Craft will inspire the reader to develop their connections with the world around them and and bring the spirit of nature into their own home.
