Charlie Whinney
Authors:
Charlie Whinney

In this beautifully compiled book, Charlie Whinney, the UK's leading expert on the topic, shares the secrets of the unique and magical craft of steam-bending. Although his creations look quite impossible, the reader will soon discover that wood can be made to behave in remarkable ways with the application of a little heat and steam. Charlie guides you through the ecological sourcing of wood for your projects and then, with practical instructions, reveals how to create your own steam-bent masterpieces. Form a wooden coathanger in the embers of a campfire, create perfectly round wooden hoops using just a saucepan and a mug, or use the steam from a kettle to shape a beautiful fruit bowl.With step-by-step instructions and inspiring photography from Charlie's workshop in the Lake District, this will make the perfect gift for anyone interested in developing a new skill.

Charles Windridge, Dr Charles Windridge

The words 'Tong Sing' mean 'know everything book.' No wonder the traditional Chinese almanack contains information on everything from astrology to herbal remedies, Taoist philosophy to the interpretation of dreams. Drawing his inspiration from this centuries-old work, but using his own research and adapting the contents to appeal to a modern audience, Charles Windridge has compiled a fully updated book that will answer every question the reader can ask about the ancient Chinese way of life. Whether you want to know the best time to conceive a child, understand more about Confucianism or prepare your own dim sum, Tong Sing can tell you how. Inspired by one of the most successful books ever published in China, this book will appeal to anyone who wants to learn more about 'Tong Sing'.

Abigail Booth
Authors:
Abigail Booth

`By teaching you the foundations of natural dyeing, and guiding you through the simple stitch techniques, this book will allow you to dip in and out of projects while learning how to forage for and grow your own dye plants.' In The Wild Dyer, Abigail Booth demystifies the `magic' of natural dyeing and shows how to use the results to stunning effect in 15 exquisite patchwork and stitch projects, including a drawstring forager's bag, an apron, samplers, cushions and a reversible patchwork blanket. Focusing on how to grow or gather your own dyeing materials - from onion and avocado skins to chamomile and comfrey, nettles and acorns - as well as scouring, mordanting (using fixative) and setting up a dye vat, Abigail explains how to create effective dyes. And once you have them, how you can produce beautiful, contemporary textiles that can then be used to create projects that build on your skills.
