About

HANDS+HEART  is a biannual independent craft magazine for young people who want to follow a sustainable lifestyle through making. We are trying to reestablish the connection between nature and society by traditional and modern craftsmanship.

HANDS+HEART es una revista independiente bianual sobre artesanía dedicada a la gente joven que quiere seguir un estilo de vida sostenible a través de las manualidades. Queremos ayudar a restablecer la conexión entre la naturaleza y la sociedad mediante la artesanía tradicional y moderna. 

The Idea

The thought of a printed magazine about craft was initially part of my Final Project for my MA in Fashion Journalism at London College of Fashion. Now, together with my friend and Graphic Designer Sara Merkaj, we are taking it a step forward and preparing the launching of the magazine on March 2019

The idea of HANDS+HEART is to promote craft as a way of improving mental health issues that are affecting each year younger people and as a sustainable alternative to mass production. Through interviews with young creatives/crafters, articles about culture and history of craft, tutorials and photography, our goal is to break the mould of craft magazines as something out of date offering a new refreshed and more contemporary vision. 

Inicialmente, la idea de una revista impresa sobre manualidades era parte de mi proyecto final para mi Máster en Periodismo de Moda en London College of Fashion. Ahora, junto con mi amiga y diseñadora gráfica Sara Merkaj, queremos llevar este proyecto adelante y nos encontramos en la preparación del lanzamiento de la revista en Marzo de 2019. 

HANDS+HEART quiere promover las manualidades y la artesanía como actividad para mejorar la salud mental de los jóvenes, y como alternativa sostenible a la producción masiva. Por medio de entrevistas con jóvenes creadores y artesanos, artículos sobre cultural e historia, tutoriales y fotografía, nuestro objetivo es romper con la idea pasada de moda de las revistas de manualidades que hay en el mercado, ofreciendo una visión más contemporánea.  

ISSUE 001

We have our prototype of the Issue 001 already made, but we are currently working on some small adjustments to deliver the product in its best way.

This is some of the content featured in the first issue: 

  •  Forest bathing
  • Corn dolly making
  • Self-portrait photography as therapy
  •  Natural dye
  • Origami
  • Skill challenge
  • Japanese wrapping

Ya disponemos de el prototipo de el primer número de la revista, y estamos trabajando en algunos arreglos para que el resultado final sea el mejor posible. 

Entre el contenido del primer número se encuentran:

  • Forest Bathing: caminatas por la naturaleza para desconectar de la ciudad con beneficios para nuestra salud. 
  • Corn dolly making: breve historia de las figuras de paja
  • Autorretratos como terapia
  • Tintes naturales 
  • Origami: papiroflexia 
  • Concurso de bordado
  • Furoshiki: método de empaquetado japonés. 

We need your help!

The money we are trying to collect will be used to cover the expenses of independent publishing: editorial, printing and postage for the first two issues. 

We believe in the power of creating our own voice and we really appreciate your help and support! 

El dinero que estamos intentado recaudar será usado para cubrir los costes de la publicación independiente: contenido editorial, impresión y envió de los dos primeros números de la revista. 

Nosotras creemos en el poder de nuestra voz y realmente agradecemos tu ayuda y apoyo!

Risks and challenges

As a Market Research has already been conducted, all the risks and challenges have been taking in consideration being the cost of publishing and distribution one of our biggest concerns.
For this reason we had to postponed the original launching date which was February 2019 and it might cause some delays in the postage.
