This light shade resembles our turquoise glass tumblers made in Ghulam’s mudbrick kiln in Herat, Afghanistan.

The coloured glass is the result of a step by step process from the mixing of ground quartz, plant ash and copper oxide, to the method for blowing the glass and loading the kiln. The way the glassblowers make the distinctive turquoise and lapis glass today remains almost identical to the 7th century description, although they melt down coloured glass found in the bazaar for some of their new colours. 📸 by @homayonbaig

So yesterday we took the #coracle to #tewkesburymedievalfestival to get a bit medieval and to try it out on a the river (well 2 actually as the river Severn converges with the Avon at you this point) I think we can call it a massive success!

Sustainable Materials and Eco Living.....
During the Middle Ages people were no longer nomadic and settled into communities. They worked their land and grew crops and all types of cereals. The stalks became the obvious choice for the roofing material on their permanent housing. Wheat straw was the standard inexpensive material for covering roofs and continued to be used for centuries.

In the 18th Century, Welsh and Northern English slate became available and replaced thatch. And when the steam locomotive was invented, roof tiles could be transported cheaply and efficiently throughout the British Isles. Along with the American invention of the combine harvester, which rendered the wheat stalks unusable for thatching, this wonderful roofing material became redundant.
Turn the clock forward to present day, and with the ever increasing interest in eco friendly products and building sustainability, there has been a resurgence in the education, preservation, restoration and installation of thatched roofs. Farmers and growers have a niche market in supplying thatching straw and combed wheat reed, cut the old fashioned way, with a reaper!

I grew up loving the thatched homes in Britain and in particular, a little village called Merthyr Mawr, close to my family’s home in the Vale of Glamorgan. (Photo) It is one of the prettiest places in Wales with brightly painted and thatched heritage cottages. Most certainly deserving of the saying “Chocolate Box” village!

The #ceramic kylix’ #interior, its round bottom, offers the artist a huge open surface to #paint. A roundel with scenes from #mythology, erotica or symbolic motifs (again) is a favorite. Find out more about the #decoration of kylix here: http://ow.ly/ZSc730kV3K8

We have ended our lovely calm drawing class for this academic year. We ended by drawing with quills and ink; first in black and then in colour. Why did we ever give the quill up??

Name: Kani Pashmina
Definition: Exquisite
Main Ingredient: Patience

It all began in Kanihama, an area located about 20 miles away from Srinagar, when exquisite Kani shawls sprung first during the Mughal Era, as the Mughal loved the art and owned many pieces at once. As time passed the craft started dying. But the people of Kanihama showed their support to their tradition, and one of the most knowledagble people retared the work with just 6 workers and the industry was soon revived.

One of the sides of the #kylix is often decorated with symmetrical and often symbolic motifs. Like these two fighting cockerels symbolize a duel hiding a #love interest between the two fighters! Want to read more about the meaning of kylix? Check out here: http://ow.ly/xjjw30kTVJN

Colours inspired by the Orkney scenery of grass, buttercups, steel-grey waters and cloudy skies. Something to take away from the visit.

In antiquity kylix was the typical wine drinking vessel, exactly what is a wine glass for us. An evolution of open-shaped vessels like goblets, it was invented to make any type of wine drinking a sensational experience. Read more about this topic here: http://ow.ly/Y1zl30kTVxb

Egyptian wonders at The British Museum. Pomegranates in a clay bowl, left as a food offering. 1550-1070 BC. And a basket containing a linen bag of embalmers salt. 1070-664 BC. It's only through the dry, arid conditions of the Egyptian desert that these and so many treasures are preserved like this. Makes you wonder at all the things that have rotted away in this climate!

May I introduce you to my new hobby called tablet weaving! I saw this ancient craft at a viking weekend at @archeonmuseumpark and I was immediately inspired to try this craft. I feel totally in peace and connected to the ancient ways when doing this. This is the first band I made and I absolutely love it! I love the colour combination and the whole technique of tablet weaving.

Regrann from @nativehands.uk - Setting up in the woods in the morning sunshine, ready to teach a day of Wild Basketry, this time using foraged grasses. We'll forage some on the day of the course and also use some I've already gathered from a beautifully species-rich field margin that I know.
Grass is one of the most numerous of the plant families, with over 10,000 species, which represents approx one third of all flowering plants on the planet. My current favourite is Timothy grass.
I'm offering this course again in Sept, details via link in bio 🌿.

If you had to search for wine glasses back in the day of the ancient Greeks you wouldn’t find any. In an era when stemless wine glass was not the point, a glasses set was out. What was in, was a kylix! Read more about the predecessor of wine glasses here: http://ow.ly/2SoO30kTUsk

Tablet weaving is an ancient craft. The earliest findings put it at about 1000bc!

I needlefelted another sheep for next saturdays sheep-shearing-festival in Balloo. I used local (animal friendly, eco) wool from Drentheheathsheep.
As background I used a slice of birch tree.
Somehow this sheep keeps smiling...😁
Have a lovely day!💚

To the surprise of nobody, Dad went off piste and made a fish trap instead of a platter for his second piece!
.
I now know more about fish traps than I ever thought possible and they’re more interesting than you’d expect 😆 Apparently they were found in nearly every ancient culture worldwide and must have been invented lots of times independently all over the place because it’s so damn useful to be able to catch fish while you’re elsewhere tending to other matters of survival!

Basket weaving day course at @westdeancollege taught by Mary Butcher. When my friend Victoria couldn’t make it at the last minute my lovely Dad stepped in and kept me company!
.
It turned out to be right up his street and we had a wonderful day.
.
We all made a willow basket/bowl and a platter, which I sized to double as a lid for the basket. When I got home I was so inspired that I made some Christmas decorations from leftovers!

Supporting old crafts is what we are all about. In a world run by machines a product made by human hands is so valuable. Yes it’s a much slower process but all the more beautiful knowing that the artisan dedicated time and applied his knowledge to something that will last. We love what we do knowing we help keeping these traditional skills alive for generations to come 💚💚💚

Scroll painting or pata chitra
This craft is highly appreciated as this craft is made on a cloth and the outlines are made up of black and red color. Every painting has different compartments narrating different stories. The painting is made using natural vegetable colors which keeps the painting bright even after 50-60yrs. The patuas uses a very interesting way of representing their paitings. They travel from one village to another and narrate the stories of the painting through dance and song.. Isn't it interesting??

It's been a long time since I handfelted a woolcollar! So it was awesome to get an assignment. (Definitely will make some more).
I used local (animalfriendly and eco) Drentheheathsheep wool.
I'm so in love with the colours; dark grey, brown and almost black!
Fantastic!
Have a wonderful day dearies! .

Visiting the famous otaki shrine and washi village. You can make your own version of the Japanese paper. It’s very easy and fun. What’s more you can use what you make such as postcards and tapestries. Meanwhile, take a small detour to visit this old and magnificent shrine.

Dyepot magic. Dyeing cleaned fleece "in the wool" with the marigold exhaust bath.

Marigold is really best used outside. Poor Ryan came home on wednesday to a hot house that smelled of marigolds and wet wool... Oops!

琉璃珠恆久遠.一串永流傳

#臺灣原住民族 中有不少使用琉璃珠的族群,如排灣、#魯凱#卑南 等三族;其中又以排灣族的古琉璃珠保存得最完整,且在電影的加持下,名氣一飛沖天🚀

各民族對琉璃珠的使用偏好、與文化意涵不盡相同。在排灣及魯凱兩族的社會中,琉璃珠是#頭目 和貴族佩戴的飾品,是#傳家之寶 、更是貴族家庭婚聘中不可或缺的物件。

#排灣族 的繼承特色是不分男女、由家中最大的孩子接管家族。因此,要如何將珍貴的琉璃珠留在家中,同時又要與身份同等或更高的家族結親,其中的人際技巧,只能說⋯真不簡單啊(´_ゝ`) 通常在#訂婚 時,男方會送出家中最有價值的琉璃珠飾,藉此展現出的地位與財富,要讓女方家族的大家長信服,婚事才能順利進行。

每顆#琉璃珠 都有自己的名字、性別與#傳說 ,其傳達的訊息也不僅在於美感、財富與地位,更有著禮儀和宗教上的意涵。

有「排灣琉璃珠之父」之稱的巫瑪斯(雷賜)曾用了三十餘年田野調查歸納出32種珠譜及其故事,但因古琉璃珠屬皆私家珍藏,在此情況之下,或許仍有隱藏的秘寶等著後人去發掘呢! -

Most recently I’ve experimented and cooked up some delightful shades of green with different mixes of herbs and metals. I think I just might try and make a wild green collar as well.
.
Love to do botanical alchemy and have learned to gather some beautiful colours and prints from Nature in the course of a year or so. I’ve been reading, experimenting alone and with friends and I attended a very special course near Amsterdam taught by India Flint @prophet_of_bloom whom I much admire, and who today has opened an online course!

I don’t know the stories behind these statues found at the Malaysian temple. These displays looked cruel to me even though it showed how criminals were brought to justice in ancient times. I don’t know why the punishing person has to look like a devil and why the punishment has to be this cruel. It’s good we don’t live in those times now ✌🏽. #templeart #ancientworld #chinesetemples #malaysiancave #travelgram #travelphotography #travelmalaysia #kualalumpurattractions #travelgraphy #ufastravelgraphy #ancientcraft #punishement #law #justice #malaysianlaw #gentinghighland
