Berlin is in a state of constant flux. The most diverse trends, cults and fashions exist alongside each other in harmony – there is room for everyone. Perhaps it is the free spirit that has been drawing creatives to the city for decades. This is where artists experiment, find themselves, re-invent themselves. Especially the DIY scene has been booming for years. In areas like Kreuzberg or Friedrichshain, there is barely a backyard which isn’t housing a makeshift workshop, studio or shop. DIY is not just a popular fad, but a way of life that is here to stay.
Series Synopsis:

Whether it’s making your own shoes, soap or urban gardening, this series travels all over Europe to discover the weird, wonderful and flourishing trend of ‘do it yourself’. We are meeting the most eccentric and creative characters from London, Marseille, Stockholm, Turin, Berlin, Istanbul, Thessaloniki, Belgrade, Bilbao and Ghent and help them DIY a new something every episode.

The series also questions our growing dependency on industrially mass produced goods and finds out how easy it is to make some of these at home. Whether it’s learning how to make your own shampoo, gain ideas for presents or be entertained by the most alternative creatives out there, this series has it all.
