Ng Mei Yi: “Mum and my cat Fuzzy attending the premiere of my home-made video on otters frolicking where I live in Singapore. The lockdown has encouraged me to channel my inner David Attenborough as I spend more time with the nature around my home.”

Peter Power: “As soon as the lockdown started I looked around for something to do, when the thought occurred to me to make a ‘home made at home’ for my granddaughter to play with. It took nearly eight weeks to complete in my small workshop at home, and once the visiting restrictions were slightly eased I took it to the garden of the home where my four-year-old granddaughter Violet lives. You can see from the joy in her face that she absolutely loves it, which gives me great pleasure. The rest is now down to a child’s imagination, with the hope that this tiny home, made at home, might exist for a few generations to come.”

Jani Tanzil: “Home-made tempeh with soy beans, black beans, azuki beans and lentils. Making these fermented bean cakes at home is labour of love that takes days. If successful, it ends with nutty, savoury goodness packed with protein that makes one thoroughly apologetic to all the tempeh that once upon a time might have been carelessly picked off the shelf and piled into the grocery basket. Fresh home-made tempeh is completely worth the effort though.”

Pelin Tuncel: “After couple of rainy days, finally the sun showed up and we got out to enjoy the garden. But there was more joy to discover for us. My dear friend Sırma came up with this lemon cake which she made with fruits of the tiny lemon tree of her garden. This sunny-look and summer-flavoured home-made beauty brightened our day even more.”

Pete Hedges: “Here is a picture of a wildlife pond that I have built for my wife’s birthday in our back garden. She is a nurse for the NHS and I am extremely proud of her. Other than the pond itself, which I already had lying around and a few of the plants, everything has been sourced for free and I think it’s turned out really well. The top layer of bricks are over 100 years old.”
