We meet #FeaturedMember Emi who has over 1,000 tutorials on youtube!

How did you find CO+K and why did you join?

I found it by accident on the internet, and thought it looked quite interesting.


What projects are you currently working on?

I am always working on knit and crochet designs, with usually 5 or more works in the queue. But the last few days, I have been designing Christmas Ornaments using paper tubes from paper towels.


We're at the BFI London Film Festival, being inspired by Keira Knightley and her new film Colette.

Come behind the scenes at Spiced for a #KitchenTour and see David's kitchen in New York.

The huge island in the middle! When we first moved into this house, the "island" was a small, movable cart with a cutting board on top. That worked for a year or two, but when we decided to install granite countertops, we also added a much larger island in the middle. The granite for the island was cut from the same piece of stone as the rest of the countertops, so it matches the kitchen perfectly. Plus, it gives me a ton of room to spread out and work on recipes!



Come behind the scenes at Iris Impressions Art for a #CraftRoomTour and see Iris's art room in London.

It's so personal and my safe space. Everything is set up to allow me to create my art easily.

We head to Malaysia to meet #FeaturedMember Harmini who believes in creating magic through art!

How did you find CO+K and why did you join?

I found CO+K while randomly browsing through some artsy blogs and immediately fell in love with it. There was so many cool ideas I absolutely had to try and contribute as well. I liked the idea of an arts and crafts community that was easy to use.


What projects are you currently working on?

More dreamcatchers! The ideas and themes just keep flowing through and it can't stop! I'm always really excited about the next one I create because I never know how it turns out.

Paper Dandy's Horrorgami

Shelf 41jdy8ncx5l

We chat to Marc a.k.a Paper Dandy, give you a chance to win the book and learn how-to make a Haunted House!

I’m a kirigami artist and design director. I started making kirigami about 3 years ago. It makes me feel like a kid again. Kirigami is cutting and folding paper. In it’s simplest form it’s making a snow flake from paper to more complex architectural replicas.
Volcano, HI, USA • Visit Website »

Come on a #KnittingNook tour of Nikki's house in the woods in Volcano, Hawaii.

It's peacefulness, it's inspiration. I came from the city back to my hometown of Volcano, Hawaii, and every day I find myself taking a deep breath of gratitude. It's a smaller space, but it feels more expansive, particularly since I can work anywhere!


Recreate the bedroom of Miss Piggy from The Muppets in #DIYTheRoomMeredith with Meredith from The Papery Craftery.

Ever since I was a little girl, I've been fascinated by The Muppets. I love the craftsmanship of all the puppets and their unique personalities, especially Miss Piggy. She is so over-the-top and dramatic; very much the opposite of me. With this room, I'm indulging my ultra-girly side to make it perfect for this diva. I've chosen soft fabrics, a glam mirror, lots of pink and a bit of gold. Plus, a few adorable plush doughnuts, because this lady loves her sweets!
