How to Make a Mated Snake Knot Bracelet by TIAT

chinese crafts Paracord Fusion Ties – Volume 1: http://www.barnesandnoble.com/w/paracord-fusion-ties-volume-1-j-d-lenzen/1111789941?ean=9780985557805 Fusion knotting is moving forward. Practitioners are understanding the principles of the fundamental theories and tying techniques, and so…I now wish to steer you toward foundation techniques that are, in themselves, the beginning of a vast quantity of new and innovative ties. First up…the Snake Knot tying technique. Or as I have created, the mated Snake Knot variant. Shown here in its most fundamental form, I will over the course of the next few months show you how this foundation tie can become a wide range of fantastic tie designs! In short, rivaled only by the Endless Falls, the Snake Knot is one of the most adaptable ties I know. Side Note: Reviews for PFT (i.e. on Amazon) and multiple online comments have (in effect) suggested I should stop teaching my weekly videos and/or charge for them (via a pay site). Further, I’m being told I should only catalog (through my books) techniques not yet shown on YouTube. Doing so would (in my opinion) stunt the knowledge people are currently gaining, and I wish to do neither. This said, what are your thoughts? Is there a large contingent of people who actually want me to stop showing you techniques on a weekly (YouTube) basis? And instead would rather only see my ties summarized on a yearly basis (via my books)? I’m confused by this, but multiple people have called for just that. So let me know…

Out of Character: Decoding Chinese Calligraphy

chinese calligraphy Chinese Calligraphy, long considered the most sublime art form in China, is like a carefully choreographed dance—precision, balance, poetry, rhythm… it’s all there in perfect harmony. Calligraphers express their character through their characters. Our new exhibition features 40 artworks, including 15 noted masterworks (many on public view for the first time). It also includes a few major modern paintings and an animation by world-renowned artist Xu Bing. Unlock the complexities of calligraphy with this bold and unprecedented presentation.
