In the process, discover a range of textile techniques - suitable for all levels and abilities - to complement your design. These include hand and machine stitching, solar dyeing, felting, hapa-zome and more. Using natural materials in textile art is way of connecting a place directly with its artistic representation, but it also makes the artist tap into and observe the true rhythms of the natural world: the seasons, the weather and time. Incorporating consciously foraged goods in art gently forces you to slow down, to take note of each season's bounty, and kindle - or rekindle - an awareness that we are all part of one big eco-system. This is an enriching book on textile and natural art that celebrates the maker's relationship with art and the natural world.

Yu Miri's distinct prose, rhythmically translated by Morgan Giles, explores the minutiae of generational trauma, shedding light on the postwar migration of Koreans to Japan. In 1930s Japanese-occupied Korea, Lee Woo-Cheol was a running prodigy and contender for the upcoming Tokyo Olympics. But he would have had to run under the Japanese flag. A century later, his granddaughter is living in Japan and training to run a marathon herself. With the help of powerful Korean shamans, she summons the spirit of Lee Woo-Cheol only to be immersed in the memories of her family and their neighbour, a young teen who was tricked into becoming a comfort woman for Japanese soldiers.

The experience depends on your stillness, silence, and full attention, watching and listening with minimal movement and if possible staying downwind so that your presence is not sensed.
