Provides readers with the techniques they need to create fabric designs from everyday materials they find in their kitchen.
Images produced by the process of screen-printing surround us everywhere we go, from the garments we wear to the pillows we put on our couches; from the bags we carry our belongings in to the mugs from which we drink coffee. Screen printing has a long history--it is the way Andy Warhol had his celebrity portraits produced. It can be done on a large scale, but it is also very easy to do with simple and affordable materials at home. With the increasing interest in personalization and in making a statement with your own customized clothes and artwork, screen printing is being rediscovered by the younger DIY audience. It is a technique with a long history--but suddenly lots of crafters are trying their hand at it at home. The aim of this book is to simplify the process of screen-printing. Presented in a step-by-step format to show that it can be used in a variety of environments, whether they plan to print on a table in a kitchen (that's how Laura Ashley started her design empire in London), a longer table in a garage, or a full studio in a basement or loft. It will also include chapters on adapting screen-printing to special areas of artistic interest and suggestions for applying the technique to produce something beautiful and functional. Home Screen Printing Workshop shows them how to print their own designer T-shirts, tote bags, scarves or posters, banners and serigraphs. The sections include simple resist printing, making a direct block out screen, making a photographic screen with found objects, making a one color simple repeat design, printing a multicolor design, printing on t-shirts, creating an engineered print, using the drama of B&W, printing with three dimensional ink, discharge printing (ink-less printing), making a photographic screen with textures, and solving common screen print problems.

This volume is composed of the best papers submitted to the HOIT2000 conference held in Wolverhampton, U. K. in June 2000. The conference, entitled "IT at home: Virtual influences on everyday life", and the papers reflect the wide variety of these influences that are coming to bear on our everyday experience, be it through the increasing use of computers or the rapid development of new telecommunications systems. The conference has been organised by IFIP Working Group 9. 3 - Home-Oriented Informatics and Telematics (HOIJ) , in association with IFIP Working Group 13. 2- Methodology for user-centred system design. This gives a broad range of topics that are within the sphere of interest of the participants and the authors of the papers. The disciplines involved in the study of this subject area are varied composing computing, telecommunications, psychology, sociology, business studies and others. The conference is the second in a series of HOlT conferences, the first being held in Copenhagen in 1994. The subject is now more mature with the various disciplines being increasingly interested in the home as a research domain. The various technical developments over the time since the first conference have also had a profound effect on the way in which people communicate both in the home and at work. The rise in the use of the Internet has changed the way in which many people view communication and access to information sources.
All Things Flow is the third and final book of The Sandpoint Trilogy set in northern Idaho; it is the continuing story of the principal characters from Apology to Grouse Creek and Ten Percent Marriage plus a sprinkling of new ones. Two middle aged new-comers have arrived to live beside Grouse Creek for different reasons: Rhododendronto enjoy a late-life relationship with Mother Nature; and Elliotto build a house in the wilderness and then write a book about it for profit. Rhododendron soon discovers that she is confronted by a long suppressed grievance against her husbanda grievance for which she ultimately sees no remedy except to move on with her life. Nathaniel is again drawn into the adversity that afflicts the world beyond his mountain home when a US Marshal appears at his log house with instructions for him and Esmeralda to pack-up and leave. The result of the marshals visit is the jailing of Esmeralda and Chico, and the gun-shot wounding of Nathaniel as he escapes into the woods. Nathaniels cousin Barry becomes despondent over the untimely death of his wife, a death that has left him with a precocious seven-year-old daughter to parent. One afternoon in a smoke filled blackcap patch, Barry and Rhododendron discover that each has a desperate hunger for the other and that neither is inclined to deny his appetites. Victoria receives a telephone message from a man who introduces himself as Dennis and tells her that he believes that the two of them could combine their efforts toward a mutual goal; that he has in mind two things: expanding the territory served by The Gallery from the upper five counties of the Idaho Panhandle to the whole wide world; and expanding The Gallerys product line to include all artistic endeavor. Dennis also mentions that Victoria is to consider the inordinate amount of money required for this venture to be no objectshe is to leave the money to him. Thus begins to flow a rapid stream of events: Nathaniel goes to Emily at Arrowhead Point to recuperate from his gun-shot wound and to plan his return to The Old Growth to defend his home. Emily takes advantage of Nathaniels convalescence to paint his portrait. Barry resigns from the US Forest Service as the result of political chicanery and moves to Washington, DC, to work as the understudy for the senior senator from Idaho. Rhododendron divorces Elliot and moves to Spokane, Washington, to work for The Sierra Club and to be near Barry. Victoria accepts Barrys seven-year-old daughter as her change. Dennis and his life-long lover, Doris, inform Victoria that they want her to become the modern day Lorenzo de Medici for the entire planet. Victoria is stunned by the radical changes looming before her should she accept Doris and Denniss financial donation; but she cannot imagine not accepting the opportunity that is hers for the taking. By the end of the tale, readers have become aware of what Lucretius, the Roman poet and philosopher, had written centuries before: that no single thing abidesbut all things flow.
