Japanese Wonder Crochet Nihon Vogue, 2019-11-05 Like Japanese knitting before it, Japanese-style crochet is getting ready to sweep the globe! Japanese Wonder Crochet is the first major Japanese crochet book to be translated into English. It introduces crafters outside Japan to the wonderful crotchet techniques and charts that are so popular within the country.

The personal and home accessory projects included provide something for every level of time commitment—from potholders and cup cozies to tote bags and blankets. More than 25 exciting projects are included: A patchwork throw A reversible cowl Bags in Bavarian, crocodile, Aran stitches and more Totes in herringbone and rib stitches A vintage bag and floral brooch in bullion stitch A tea cozy, mittens, a shawl And so much more! An extensive introduction by Japanese knitting and crochet expert Gayle Roehm explains the stitch charts as well as the differences and similarities between Japanese and Western styles of crochet. A guide to stitch symbols and extensive lessons provide visual guidance. With Japanese Wonder Crochet and a little practice, crocheters and Japanese-style knitters can open up many new horizons using the wonderful patterns that so many Westerners have already fallen in love with.

Visual Diary Guide - Student Workbook Hilary Senhali 2015-06-30 In 2014, the Australian Government was investing into creativity and innovation as part of a growth strategy. Critical & creative thinking ranked 4th in the Australian Curriculum after Literacy, Numeracy and ICT, across all subjects. In the Arts, it made explicit references to how to achieve this with the use of visual journals. In a way, this represented a sea change in the way creativity was being taught. But by what means? Where would teachers get practical help to make this happen?The Visual Diary Guides provide just this kind of help. Produced by an artist-teacher, in two integrated parts they address both students and teachers while aligning with the Australian Curriculum.They begin by identifying 'inspiration' as the fuel for the creative activity. But it is hard to store inspiration for later use. And even harder to make it fun!The books argue that the 'storage' is that ordinary art journal, the Visual Diary, which in the present classroom setting is often wasted as a portfolio. Its explosive creative potential is there to be unlocked. The books set out to do that in the classroom. Contrary to common belief, a structured approach with limits and boundaries is required for creativity to truly flourish.The Visual Diary becomes a students' personal treasure-trove much like an ordinary diary. The main premise of these books is that everyone has an artist in them and a trustworthy guide is needed to locate it.The Visual Diary Guide - Student Work book is written for students in accessible language. Through more than 40 specially designed activities, students find and capture inspiration and ideas that personally resonate for them. It opens the door for students to explore the visual culture they are immersed in, making it accessible in the art room for refinement, analysis and development as a supplement to the art room program.

Adaptive Strategies for Water Heritage Carola Hein 2019-10-18 This Open Access book, building on research initiated by scholars from the Leiden-Delft-Erasmus Centre for Global Heritage and Development (CHGD) and ICOMOS Netherlands, presents multidisciplinary research that connects water to heritage. Through twenty-one chapters it explores landscapes, cities, engineering structures and buildings from around the world. It describes how people have actively shaped the course, form and function of water for human settlement and the development of civilizations, establishing socio-economic structures, policies and cultures; a rich world of narratives, laws and practices; and an extensive network of infrastructure, buildings and urban form. The book is organized in five thematic sections that link practices of the past to the design of the present and visions of the future: part I discusses drinking water management; part II addresses water use in agriculture; part III explores water management for land reclamation and defense; part IV examines river and coastal planning; and part V focuses on port cities and waterfront regeneration. Today, the many complex systems of the past are necessarily the basis for new systems that both preserve the past and manage water today: policy makers and designers can work together to recognize and build on the traditional knowledge and skills that old structure embody. This book argues that there is a need for a common agenda and an integrated policy that addresses the preservation, transformation and adaptive reuse of historic water-related structures. Throughout, it imagines how such efforts will help us develop sustainable futures for cities, landscapes and bodies of water.

When Nina Wilde, head of the International Heritage Agency (IHA), and her husband, ex-mercenary Eddie Chase, arrive to investigate, they are told a chilling story: A scholar has discovered that the stone may be one of two keys to finding the mythological site of Valhalla, where the Vikings predicted the world’s final battle would begin. The second stone lies at the bottom of a Norwegian lake. But when Nina and Eddie race to the scene, they’re hit with a shocking surprise.

In yarn shops and private homes, churches and synagogues, schools and even prisons, they meet on weekday evenings or weekend afternoons to knit afghans for refugees, mittens for the homeless, socks for soldiers, or preemie caps for AIDS babies. The tradition goes back as far as Martha Washington, who spearheaded knitting efforts for the soldiers of the Revolutionary War, and has seen a recent flourishing in what is nowadays called “charity knitting,” “community knitting,” or “knitting for others.” And whether it’s for world peace, community peace, or peace of mind, today’s various causes have the common goal of knitting the world into a better place one stitch at a time. Knitting for Peace is an exceptional book that celebrates the long heritage of knitting for others. It tells the stories of 28 contemporary knitting-for-peace endeavors and features patterns for easy-to-knit charity projects such as hats, socks, blankets, and bears, plus a messenger bag emblazoned with the Knitting for Peace logo. Enlivened by anecdotal sidebars and quotations from both knitters and peacemakers, this inspiring book also includes everything readers need to know to start their own knitting-for-peace groups.
Jane Austen Embroidery Jennie Batchelor 2020-03-05 15 beautiful embroidery projects from the era of Jane Austen. Jane Austen was as skilful with a needle as she was with a pen. This unique book from Jennie Batchelor and Alison Larkin showcases recently discovered 18th century embroidery patterns expertly repurposed into 15 exciting modern stitching projects.

The book includes both contemporary and historical case studies, tracing how since the fifteenth century, architects and architectural movements have endeavoured to maintain their status by defending what they see as their own unique territory - the origins and intentions of their work, and their signature style. Case studies include domestic space; eighteenth century landscape gardens; the Berlin of the late nineteenth and early twentieth century; postmodernism and the 'Death of the Author'. The book also explores the work of luminaries from Ernst Neufert and Cedric Price to Lewis Caroll, Rem Koolhaas, and Peter Eisenman. The result of the Annual Meeting of The Society of Architectural Historians held in Vancouver in 2005, Architecture and Authorship is global in scope and farreaching in its implications. An alternative look at the history and culture of architecture, Architecture and Authorship includes original research into themes that are of increasing importance to contemporary architectural theory and practice relating to indemnity, ownership, gender, and the writing of history.
The Nature of Technology W. Brian Arthur 2009-08-11 “More than anything else technology creates our world. It creates our wealth, our economy, our very way of being,” says W. Brian Arthur. Yet despite technology’s irrefutable importance in our daily lives, until now its major questions have gone unanswered. Where do new technologies come from? What constitutes innovation, and how is it achieved? Does technology, like biological life, evolve? In this groundbreaking work, pioneering technology thinker and economist W. Brian Arthur answers these questions and more, setting forth a boldly original way of thinking about technology. The Nature of Technology is an elegant and powerful theory of technology’s origins and evolution. Achieving for the development of technology what Thomas Kuhn’s The Structure of Scientific Revolutions did for scientific progress, Arthur explains how transformative new technologies arise and how innovation really works. Drawing on a wealth of examples, from historical inventions to the high-tech wonders of today, Arthur takes us on a mind-opening journey that will change the way we think about technology and how it structures our lives. The Nature of Technology is a classic for our times.

Ents, Elves, and Eriador Matthew T. Dickerson 2006-11-17 Many readers drawn into the heroic tales of J. R. R. Tolkien’s imaginary world of Middle-earth have given little conscious thought to the importance of the land itself in his stories or to the vital roles played by the flora and fauna of that land. As a result, The Hobbit, The Lord of the Rings, and The Silmarillion are rarely considered to be works of environmental literature or mentioned together with such authors as John Muir, Rachel Carson, or Aldo Leopold. Tolkien’s works do not express an activist agenda; instead, his environmentalism is expressed in the form of literary fiction. Nonetheless, Tolkien’s vision of nature is as passionate and has had as profound an influence on his readers as that of many contemporary environmental writers. The burgeoning field of agrarianism provides new insights into Tolkien’s view of the natural world and environmental responsibility. In Ents, Elves, and Eriador, Matthew Dickerson and Jonathan Evans show how Tolkien anticipated some of the tenets of modern environmentalism in the imagined world of Middle-earth and the races with which it is peopled. The philosophical foundations that define Tolkien’s environmentalism, as well as the practical outworking of these philosophies, are found throughout his work. Agrarianism is evident in the pastoral lifestyle and sustainable agriculture of the Hobbits, as they harmoniously cultivate the land for food and goods. The Elves practice aesthetic, sustainable horticulture as they shape their forest environs into an elaborate garden. To complete Tolkien’s vision, the Ents of Fangorn Forest represent what Dickerson and Evans label feraculture, which seeks to preserve wilderness in its natural form. Unlike the Entwives, who are described as cultivating food in tame gardens, the Ents risk eventual extinction for their beliefs. These ecological philosophies reflect an aspect of Christian stewardship rooted in Tolkien’s Catholic faith. Dickerson and Evans define it as “stewardship of the kind modeled by Gandalf,” a stewardship that nurtures the land rather than exploiting its life-sustaining capacities to the point of exhaustion. Gandalfian stewardship is at odds with the forces of greed exemplified by Sauron and Saruman, who, with their lust for power, ruin the land they inhabit, serving as a dire warning of what comes to pass when stewardly care is corrupted or ignored. Dickerson and Evans examine Tolkien’s major works as well as his lesser-known stories and essays, comparing his writing to that of the most important naturalists of the past century. A vital contribution to environmental literature and an essential addition to Tolkien scholarship, Ents, Elves, and Eriador offers both Tolkien fans and environmentalists an understanding of Middle-earth that has profound implications for environmental stewardship in the present and the future of our own world.
