Texts & Textiles: John Ruskin

“…every youth in the State–from the King’s son downward–should learn to do something finely and thorougly with his hand, so as to let him know what touch meant; and what stout craftsmanship meant; and to inform him of many things besides, which no man can learn by by some severely accurate discipline in doing”

from John Ruskin, Time and Tide by Weare and Tyne: Twenty-Five Letters to a Working Man of Sunderland on the Laws of Work. London: Ballantyne, 1906.
