I started Hands On Workshop after visiting craft shops in Tokyo, and discovering the materials are not readily available outside of Japan. At the time I was learning lampshade making and found the Tenugui fabrics are the perfect weight and texture for shades, and a novel way to work with beautiful patterns and designs without having any sewing skills! HOW imports craft kits, tools and accessories which suit beginner crafters, from leatherwork and Shibori dye kits to colourful sewing supplies and (soon to come) fabric patterns. We translate any tricky instructions into English to make the kits accessible for the wider crafting community.
