              A top designer in dried floral welcomes you into her studio to learn the craft's potential. Today in floral design, dried flowers and botanicals give their fresh cousins a strong run for their long-held position as the classic material.

Antonia De Vere, a top designer in dried floral creations, here welcomes you into her studio to understand the potential you'll be able to enjoy when working with dried flowers. She shares how and why dried floral has become her career and her source of creative energy.

Learn how to select, dry, and assemble flowers and foliage. Then enjoy 18 step-by-step projects that bring De Vere's popular design style into your own home. This art's sustainability and zero-waste focus - damaged flowers that can't be sold for fresh bouquets can be used productively - is another reason forever flowers are perfect for today.

              Modern Splicing: Shown Step by Step
               

              Modern Splicing: Shown Step by Step (Hardback)

              For marine, boating, and climbing amateurs and professionals at all levels, splices-the strongest way of attaching or joining the end of a rope-are essential. Why? Because a splice gives the strongest way of attaching or joining the end of a rope to any object or to another rope.... (Every knot, on the other hand, weakens a rope.) In this much-anticipated handbook, world-renowned expert Friedl guides you through modern splicing techniques with his clear directions, one-of-a-kind color diagrams, and 200+ color photos. The book is supplemented by four-plus hours of excellent video instruction. Throughout, every type of splice is shown by an expert climber and shipbuilder. Learn what to know before starting to splice, then build a solid understanding and competence of modern cordage, its construction, and its fiber materials. Friedl has over 35 years of sailing experience, including several Atlantic crossings, and is also a professional climber. He teaches seminars and workshops on modern splicing worldwide, and in 2006, Friedl made the modern soft shackle internationally known. Now, his much-anticipated book allows you, whether you are a hobbyist or a professional, to leverage splicing skills to become more self-reliant while making your maritime or climbing pursuits safer.

              This richly illustrated and comprehensive resource helps watercolourists plan and create exceptional paintings by focusing on colour, value, and other elements in both subjects and settings. Too often, melding the subject with the background is an afterthought for artists. White!... Light! Bright! is the mantra for this book's unique and effective method for planning your subject in concert with its background, and then creating a powerful piece in three major stages: from white, light, and bright colour to mid-values and finally to darks. Easy-to-follow text from a skilled teacher alongside visuals and demonstrations helps you catch the energising spark of light and contrast. Get comfortable with the how-to of building value, colour, shape, and background through various edges, textures, and other compositional elements. You'll bolster the creative thinking and planning processes that are key to an artist's ability to turn an abstract idea into a standout representational watercolour painting. AUTHOR: Bivenne Staiger is a watercolour instructor with a dual ability to paint with distinction and teach with clarity. Recipient of American Watercolor Society's Silver Medal and many other distinguished awards, she has shared her knowledge through classes, workshops, and art demonstrations for almost 20 years. SELLING POINTS: Provides an efficient and easy-to-follow three-stage process for painting subjects with backgrounds For students of watercolour - melding backgrounds with subjects is a common challenge most artists face Simplifies many motif possibilities into a planning section and painting component broken into three major stages 125 colour illustrations

              Want to make your quilting easier to carry with you? Try the quilt-as-you-go methods that women of the 1800s invented so they could work on small blocks in stolen snatches of time. This quilting approach has many other benefits: It allows shorter sessions for tasks that some find... tedious - no more weeklong cutting or piecing marathons. It makes sewing-machine work less cumbersome, makes use of small batting scraps, and doesn't require a frame. Based on research ranging from the women's diaries, to finds at quilt auctions, to clues shared by worldwide quilter chat groups, Portable Patchwork tells stories about the origins of this technique and the creative women who made or owned the quilts. Included are four projects demonstrating different quilt-as-you-go methods, allowing you to master this technique and add your own unlimited variations - just as your foremothers did. AUTHOR: Pamela Weeks is the Binney Family Curator of the New England Quilt Museum. She is a quilt historian and quilter, and coauthor of Civil War Quilts with Don Beld. SELLING POINTS: The only illustrated history of 19th-century potholder quilts, with backstories about the creative women who invented this time-saving method, and projects showing how to adapt it for today's on-the-go crafting Quilt lovers will learn to recognise quilt-as-you-go techniques in old quilts, enjoy the stories behind the quilts, and try the fun projects that bring history into their modern creations Four vintage-inspired projects teach you the method: Briar's Baby Quilt, Aunt Jo's Gift, Red Hexagons, and Add a Block Quilt 290 colour illustrations and patterns
