The local crafter revolution and trend has reached a milestone with the newly published local book Raw Crafts by North Vancouver resident Denise Corcoran.  Raw Crafts features eco-friendly materials such as cork, hemp, jute, and burlap; all red-hot go to items among the DIY/maker community. Raw Crafts shares over 40 easy to complete projects ranging from pillows and tote bags to woven bowls, birdhouses, frames, rugs, toys, and jewelry that incorporate repurposed materials sourced locally.
