Made By Hand is a mini documentary by Tatanja Ross, which discusses the revival of handmade approaches in the art world. The director showcases a glimpse of this movement through work of emerging artists based in Melbourne, Australia. The portrayed illustrators, paper crafts, screen printing and textile artists discuss how the handmade movement inspires and benefits their work.
As Tatanja mentions in the documentary, “the DIY culture is less of a simple art trend but a lifestyle that many makers encompass and put back into the world”. In the world of mass manufactured products, the director hopes to inspire other young artists to work with their hands and show that supporting local artists and makers is important and worthwhile.
