Hole & Corner / Issue 21: Restless


Hole & Corner Magazine is always a treat, and this
21sth Issue is true to form:
"Welcome to Hole & Corner 21, an issue that is both
inspired by, and a result of, an ever-increasing feeling
of restlessness. The past year has given even the most
dedicated homebody itchy feet.

While we’ve been focusing on life inside our own four walls,
we’re also keen to get away. Quite where ‘away’ is, varies
from person to person. So we’ve been doing some long-distance
travelling, as well as some trips closer to home that still
stretch the imagination and trigger a few flagging neurons.

We caught up with Sarah Ryhanen to hear about her life at
Worlds End, the New York State farm she’s built with her
family, friends and co-workers. Then we couldn’t resist a
dip into the sauna culture of Finland, recently identified
as worthy of protection on UNESCO’s List of Cultural Heritage.
Next stop, an organic cotton seed-to-sew collective, Oshadi,
in south India, using ancient recipes to make miracles grow –
as nature intended. We talked to seasoned travellers,
temporarily stopped in their tracks, about the places they’ve
visited – from photographer Cat Vinton’s documentation of
an ocean-dwelling community dealing with the real impact
of climate change, to Catherine Lock of The New Craftsmen,
who talked us through some of the little treasures and
curiosities she’s collected on her travels over the years."
