  • The Impact of Industrial Practical Skills on Fashion students in Ghanaian
           Polytechnics (A case Study of Kumasi and Accra Polytechnics)

    • Authors: Peggy Maansah Ankai Howard; Kweku Bedu Simpson, Agbeyewornu Kofi Kemevor
      Abstract: The main objective of the research was to determine the importance of students industrial practical  skills program in the curriculum of the polytechnic education, how well the program is organized, its benefits and challenges that confront the organization. The research used qualitative method of collecting data using questionnaires and interviews. In all a total of 200 questionnaires were administered and 195 were returned. The population comprised of students on the program, past students, employers of fashion industries and homes and liaison officers from the two study areas. Qualitative and quantitative means were used to present the data in the form of charts, tables and texts. The most significant results were that students and the school were the main financiers of the program and finding places for the program was still a difficult task for both students and school. The rating for the organization of the program showed that 44.1% of the respondents rated it as average, 25.9% as good or excellent whilst 29.96% rated it as poor.  More than 2/3 (76.29%) of the employers benefitted very much from the program as against the rest, (23.6%) which either did not benefit much or not at all. While less than 2/3 (64.10%) of the past students were employed based on prior experience on the program, (35.9%) were employed using different criteria.  Suffice to that more than 9/10 (95. 24%) of the respondents reported of the program being either very important or important as against a few (4.76%) considering it as less important. Two-thirds (66.7%) of employers preferred engaging the services of people with industrial practical experience whereas the rest (33.3%) not using that as prerequisite for employment. The notable challenges that confronted students on the program were 37.4% financial, 30.53% accommodation, 20.61% less attention from the places of attachment with the rest 6.1% and 5.34% accounting for disrespect from workers and other challenges respectively. It was also realized that most (63.3%) of the trainees found it difficult while looking for placement with the rest (37.6%) seeing it otherwise. In spite of the challenges, close to total respondents of (98.85%) were either satisfied or very satisfied with the program.  The principal conclusion was that though majority of the students were satisfied with the program pragmatic steps should be taken to improve it.

  • Tradition Concept in Kauman Yogyakarta Settlement As A Representation of
           Javanese Cultural Values

    • Authors: Cama Juli Rianingrum; Agus Sachari, MSn, Pribadi Widodo, MSn.
      Abstract: The Kauman settlement in Yogyakarta is an urban village settlement that is almost three centuries old and located at the heart of the Yogyakarta business and tourism center. The settlement was founded in 1775 by Sri Sultan Hamengkubuwono I as housing facility for the abdi dalem (palace employees) on religious affairs. The settlement has undergone many changes influenced by politics, power and globalization that eventually brought modernization to the settlement. Starting from 1912, the settlement began to be strongly influenced by Muhammadiyah organization. Even though the Kauman settlement is now an open community and no longer part of the palace bureaucracy, its people still practice the way of life based on Javanese cultural values supported by piety in practicing Islamic rules in daily life from generation to generation. The Kauman settlement today exist authentically as both a Muslim society and part of the Javanese traditional culture. This authenticity is visible in the settlement layout and the buildings within, which reflect a calm and cozy urban village settlement with its own characteristics amidst the business and tourism center of Yogyakarta. Keywords : Settlement, Kauman Yogyakarta, Tradition, Javanese culture
  • Architectural Elements in Islamic Ornamentation: New Vision in
           Contemporary Islamic Art

    • Authors: Jeanan Shafiq
      Abstract: Throughout history, Islamic Ornamentation was the most characteristic to identify Islamic architecture. It used in mosques and other Islamic buildings. Many studies were about the formation of Islamic art from pre-existing traditional elements and about the nature of the power which wrought all those various elements into a unique synthesis. Nobody will deny the unity of Islamic art, despite the differences of time and place. It’s far too evident, whether one contemplates the mosque of Cordoba, the great schools of Samarkand or Al- Mustansiriya. It’s like the same light shone forth from all these works of art. Islam does not prescribe any particular forms of art. It merely restricts the field of expression. Ideology of Islam depends on the fixed and variable principles. Fixed indicate to the main principles of Islam that could not be changed in place and time including the oneness of God, while the variable depends on human vision in different places through time. It's called the intellectual vision inherited in Islamic art. Islamic Ornamentation today is repeating the same forms, by which, it turns to a traditional heritage art. From this specific point the research problem started. Are we able to find different style of ornament that refers to Islamic Art? Islamic ideology in its original meaning is a faculty of timeless realities. Islamic art derives its beauty from wisdom. The aim of this study is to contextualize the concept and analyze the Islamic traditional ornamentation, focusing on the principles of Islamic ideology, which was behind the formation of a distinct identity and uniform architecture in Islamic cities and across time. Second step is about suggesting some of the Islamic architectural elements as new ornamental elements that have the same effect within the limit of Islamic ideology and principles, in order to present new ornamentation elements. Finally applying the new elements in models of artistic paintings as a practical application done by researcher to produce the new vision as a contemporary Islamic ornamentation. Keywords: Islamic Ornamentation, Traditional Islamic Art, Contemporary Art, Islamic Architecture.
  • A Multiple Colour Bobbin Winder: An Enhanced Accessory for Transforming
           Indigenous On-Loom Weaving

    • Authors: William Badoe; Nana Afia Opoku-Asare, Ross Emmanuel Ansah
      Abstract: Indigenous hand weaving is an ancient traditional handicraft practised in many cultures across Africa, Asia, Middle East, Europe and Latin America. The looms and accessories are made from local materials and the mechanism for their operation involves simple technologies that are easy to learn. These traditional hand weaving looms mostly produce long, narrow strips of patterned woven fabric that are sewn together to construct cloth, carpets and other specialized end-user woven products. Bobbin winding is an integral aspect of weft preparation for weaving. Bobbin winders used by cloth weavers in the indigenous Ghanaian textiles industry have capacity to produce single bobbins only at a time, which lengthens the yarn preparation and weaving periods, and reduced productivity of cloth weavers. The bobbin winder described in this article is semi-automatic, capable of winding multiple bobbins with single or multiple coloured yarns of uniform tension concurrently within a short time for higher rate production of woven fabrics in direct contrast with existing bobbin winders. This bobbin winder was based on the Universal Design Methodology and constructed with the sole aim of resolving limitations of existing bobbin winders in order to transform the traditional weaving industry. Testing the bobbin winder for broadloom weaving by 58 textiles students proved the technology is simple, efficient and effective; easy to manipulate and wind multiple bobbins within a short time. This implies time saving in weft preparation and hand weaving for increased productivity in Ghana’s indigenous textiles industry. Keywords: bobbin winder; weft preparation; hand weaving; traditional loom; indigenous textiles industry
