The Crafted Garden stylish projects inspired by natureThe Crafted Garden stylish projects inspired by nature
by Louise Curley
Photography by Jason Ingram   |   September 2015  |   Hardback
£16.99
Published by Frances Lincoln

The Crafted Garden is the second book by exceptional new talent, Louise Curley, who shares her passion for natural garden craft with a wider audience. These fifty novel and attractive projects and techniques will give everyone a chance to feel clever about their creativity, as they transform twigs, sprigs, berries and stems into baubles, bunches, decorations and works of art. These are projects for indoors and out, arranged by the season, with galleries of projects to inspire, step by steps projects to copy and technique masterclasses to help readers develop their own skills.

The Crafted Garden is about bringing the outdoors in and being inspired by nature. It’s about recapturing the joy of making daisy chains, of nature tables of foraged finds as an antidote to

modern life. This book relies on home-grown and foraged plant material to open up the imagination and capture seasonality, whether that’s to add a touch of individuality to a dinner party or for making the perfect housewarming gift. Reuse, recycle recreate are the ideas behind each project.

LOUISE CURLEY has a growing audience through her widely read blog, Wellywoman, and features

in Gardeners’ World, Grow Your Own, Garden Answers and The Guardian. Her first book, The Cut

Flower Patch, which won The Garden Media Guild Award 2014 for Best Practical Book, has received many plaudits, reviews and extracts, and the combination of Louise’s inspiration and Jason Ingram’s photography makes a compelling package. Louise is based in Monmouthshire, England.

JASON INGRAM is an award-winning garden and food photographer who has also published Kitchen Garden Experts and One-Pot Gourmet Gardener with Frances Lincoln.

MADE BY YOURSELF - 100% HANDMADE DESIGNER DIY PROJECTS FOR THE HOME, FROM FURNITURE TO ACCESSORIES BY PETER FEHRENTZMADE BY YOURSELF - 100% HANDMADE DESIGNER DIY PROJECTS FOR THE HOME, FROM FURNITURE TO ACCESSORIES BY PETER FEHRENTZ
Hardback  |  £18.00
You can get  ideas for your own creations practically everywhere: in the DIY store, at the scrap yard, at the flea market and in places you would never expect to find inspiration. It is fun to experiment with different materials and to put them in a new and unexpected context.
Sometimes an idea is very simple but it may turn out to be quite complicated to realise. You may have to tinker with it for quite a while until it looks the way you envisaged it. But at the end of the day, you can be proud to have created something all by yourself: an object to give to a friend or to enhance your own space. Made by Yourself is a book for everyone who loves to take a new and creative look at things.
Made by Yourself is a practical and inspirational book filled with sophisticated and creative ideas. Brilliantly presented and beautifully photographed, it includes forty eight unique objects and original pieces of furniture made from stone, wood,  paper, cardboard, glass, ceramics, metal, plastic, fabric or leather that are easy to recreate through simple step by step instructions, illustrations and patterns. Each chapter is dedicated to a different material.
Readers looking to personalise their home can follow the easy tutorials in the book, as well as sketches and patterns. Expertly guided by a professional designer and stylist, both beginners and established designers will feel confident and inspired to start their own projects.

Cloud SketchingCloud Sketching –
Creative Drawing for Cloud Spotters and Daydreamers
By Martin Feijoo
Quarry | 3rd March 2016
Paperback | £12.99

"When I was a child, I was told that clouds' shapes were created by expert balloon twister clowns who live in the sky, so that they can keep entertaining children." - Martin Feijoo
Look up at the clouds. What do you see? What do you sketch?
As a child, you'd spend hours looking at the sky on a summer day, watching clouds pass, and identifying shapes, animals, scenes, and more. "That one looks like a dinosaur!" is just one of the ways that these muses in the sky can be perceived.
With Cloud Sketch by Martin Fiejoo, it's time to take what you see and use it to create wonderful, whimsical art right on the photographs.
In Cloud Sketch, you'll discover Martin's general technique for drawing imaginative creations over photographs of clouds. Then, enjoy a selection of completed cloud sketches from Martin Feijoo, from his wildly popular art series Shaping Clouds. Take on the taks of finishing the included partial cloud sketches. Explore the freedom of a host of "blank" clouds for doodling your own designs. Finally, you'll find blank journal pages where you can add in images of clouds from your own life on which to sketch.
