1. Promotional Video: Hello, everyone. And welcome to this class on how to weave your own decorative basket. In this class, you will learn step by step. How to make your own basket. The teacher that will show you these steps is called Jose Manuel Focus. And he's one of the top artisans in his home country. Peru on I will be in charge of doubling the class into English. We hope you enjoy this class. 2. Tools needed to make any project with natural fibers: continuing with the class. In order to make these products, we need certain tools. If, for example, we need a measuring tape to be able to measure, they mentions, the sisters will be able to cause the product. The blade would also be used to cut some afterwards. The type X will be used toe make geometric molds off any size, and this is a threat. Er, I make it with my own hands from on the wire off an old umbrella. We can fold the wire, and this will help us to make the final finishes. That is, the remaining tips can be passed again and cut at the end. Said they're not seen on. We have the needle that helps us to reach completion of some of the products. And I would also like to show you two more tools. First, a piece of wood. This is used to press the fiber when we're working the room weaving technique on the floor . Onda. We also have a second tour, which is a rock to be able to press the fiber. When we pressed the fiber, it becomes flat on that porous. So these are the tools that we use to make any product 3. Draw the geometric template: So now I'm going to drop the geometric mold. In this case, this is the moment it is round. It is about that I bought. So I'm going to draw that you metric more like this. Ready? So the geometric mouldings were already drawn. So once I have traced is your metric mold. I have to sort the fibers. You have to classify them by according to their thicknesses the finished on one side and the thickest on another side. In this case, I will separate a group off have an intermediate thickness. So not to think, not very thin here because this is the basket. It's a small product. So I have to separate the fibers of the same things. Homogeneous fibers. So we keep separating them wrapped several fibres. Here we go on approximate. So no, I have to Costly because I have to leave some space for the finishings. So about five centimeters on on each site, on average, five centimeters on its site for the finishings. So here I make a cut on. I also cut the other fibers of the group with the same measurement of the fiber a cup first . So here we go cut here. That's it. On by. Continue. So this is going to be the main color or the background color. And now I will I will do the shading. So there's the red color and now I will shade this red with with other colors. In this case, I'm going to first get the yellow fibres. Also try to get the ones that have similar fitness, the same as the red fiber thickness. All right, here we go. So at least count the number of fibers. Ah, so you have a the same same number. And the rest of the colors you're 12 yellow, green and now a Now the purple, also 12. Okay, so have yellow purple green on which one are we missing? We're missing orange or it's the orange Oren's. Or in this one here 12 Warren's. So I I also have to make the cut again. Same Seiss. Ready? Okay. Now I have to mix this up. It is well integrated like this. Mix them up. There we go. So, as I told you that the material is placed on top of the geometric mold that we have drawn on going to calculate that there's no color missing. Maybe a little bit more of red would be nice. It's like a few more red fibers. Andi Course. Cut again. There we go. This extra parts are not wasted. We will save them for small things. Okay, so since I have already cut enough, I have to mix it up, mix it up well, and no, I separated. I separate the fibers into two groups, more less of the same amount. So I place this group here above the drawing of the mall. There should be the same distance within the line to the end and also the same on the other side. So? So I'm with fiber. I can measure and say that they have us in distance. Perfect. Now I extend the fiber with a wood like that. Spread the fiber with the wood right in the middle of the circle. Okay, but as we can see here, the yellow color is more to the right on here. The center there's a little yellow. So we have to correct this. We have to put more yellow in the middle. So? So it is good that you have, uh, that you check that the colors are well distributed. I'm mixed up. So bit of let's move this screen here. Mix it up. That's it. So we have to make sure that the color is not grouped in only one place. There we go. One more fiber here that also the fibers are placed in only one place. Or let's make them up. Colors must be shared the whole basket. Okay, so I have already spread the fiber and I have checked out the fibers are grouped in only one place, and now he said, Ah, this must be in the middle. So I'll start doing the weaving. You have to find the way that is more comfortable for you s so that you do not get tired when you're working there. There are several ways toe make pressure with the wood. You can put the wood like this where you can have a wider would so that the fiber doesn't move. In this case, I'm going to press with my left foot 4. Getting familiarized with the "esterilla" weaving technique: Okay, So for the basket, I'm going to use weaving technique called hysteria. It consists of lifting on leaving fibers in groups. So I'm going to start right away, work to start. I have to place his word on top of the fiber so the fibers don't move is very important that the fire of the sun. So get yourself comfortable and press with your feet on top of the wood. There we go. Okay, So this technique consists of lifting six fivers. First on leaving six fibers on the floor. You lift six more fivers on you leave six fires like this. Perfect. So for six, make sure to come them for six. There we go. So for 6246 okay, for six for six. Okay. If on one side there are more fibers. So, for example, in this case, there were, Ah, 995 years left on the site. Just leave them. Because if I take them, there will be missing fibers like that. Perfect. Okay, So I really lifted the groups of fibers, and I also left a few groups of fibers. Now I'm going to wrap eight fibers also off different colors for fix eight fires. Perfect. Okay, so something that you must be careful with Is that the fiber or the weaving a ghost? Well, you have to press with the thumb or the index finger. You have to press the fire like this. So the fibre, by pressing it, you make the fiber flat. So here I have ah, stone that I can place here so that the fiber listen moved. You see it? The stone helps. Helps me to press the fiber so that it doesn't. Okay, So now, after bringing this fiber down, I begin to lift what was on the under on the floor. You have to help yourself with your fingers. We'll tow bend the fibers without without it getting up. Because you'll get this. If you get the fiber fold in different ways, so have us done their way of folding. Just use your fingers like that. Here we go. Okay, so now we're going to make the second weaving. Okay. Again, insert eight fibers. So the same as before. Press with the summer index finger, and then you can put the stone on top so that the fibers did not move. That brings the fiber down. Excellent. So here, be careful that the fiber does not a go on top of other fibers. The fibers must mean must be well extended. There we go. You can use your fingers for help to be ableto bend the fiber. So it's the same process as as before you left by groups off fibers. That's it. Now again, wrap a fibers off different colors. Of course, it's up to you the calorie. But it looks good if there are several colors. So with the right hand you with I'm with the left hand. The west is is pressed. There we go with the help of your fingers, Get down by groups. Okay, so now you have to smooth in the fiber because the fiber is very has a very hard texture. So how you do this with a stone, you have to rub the fiber giving it a bit off. I think that rubbing it a little bit, tap it a little bit. That's it. Now we can continue here. The the mold is over, so we have to guide ourselves by the line of the mold Here. As you can see, we cannot lift more fiber because we live more fibres, then it will be out of the drawing here. Yes, here we can lift more and make sure to center the fiber well on the real. Okay. Now grab another group of a fibers. Place it. I'm sure they have different colors. It would look beautiful with the different colors, as you can see, where you sing the mould actually before. But this passage can be made of different sizes. So it's just that that the length of the fibers of the size of your mole Okay, so we're moving forward, Okay? So use your head fingers to bend the fiber center. A whole group in the middle of the mold again. Rap group of fibers, eight fibers. Please Said there we go, pressing with a summary index finger, pressing the fire with those fingers. So the fibre flattens a little bit. There you go. Next of the five works. Well, okay, so now we have arrived. So the border of the drawing 5. How to make the base of basket: Okay, so now I'm going to secure the outline of the move that I have begin to do. So I grab one new fiber and I bend it in this way. So there's a short side on alongside. And now grab four fibers like that and insert them like this. Okay. Like that. And reach the line of the drawing. Now up. Four more. But let me stop here for a second. You have to say CIA detail here we have grabbed this fiber, which has society, but one side we have to go with once I would have to go around and below the warp like that . Okay, Now we grab for more for more fibers on the same past, the fiber below the war like that. Andi, don't forget to adjust. Just right there. Okay, Rob. Four more. So this fiber okay, four more like that. This fiber goes around the war. Okay, there we go. Like that around on. Just just always on top of the line of the drawing. Okay. We have to follow the line. Okay. So here here there are a reaching a corner of the circle, so we have to turn of it And so there There are several fibers here. Here. Grab two or 25 or from the war on to five from the west. Okay. On the same thing. Past the fiber around it, below. Like that on a just. There we go. So now grab for more too. From the war and two from the west. So you see, I'm following the line. I'm following the line like that. I just So I grabbed four more this case on grabbing ongoing one from the warp on three from the West because I need to give shape to the base. Say the same here. I worked too, from the war and two from the West. So, like that, that's how I do the around that shape. The work is that is that the work is when we have put on top on the West is what we have used to make the weaving. So for mortal, from the the weaving into from the work like that no more one here. Same. So I grabbed four more always in groups of four always world work in groups of four for more. And that's how that's how I give. Give it a around shape or more. As you can see, I'm giving it that around the shape it has to come out a perfect rounded shape. The detail here is that it has to be well adjusted. So you have to pull so that the fire is not. It does not shrink. So in the same way here from the west until from the war, that's how we were shaping around the base. No. We moved the woods impressed with the foot. That way it won't move. Who will be better for working? So let's continue. The most important here is that you give it you give the base around shape. Okay, so So this fiber that we're using to the secure is finishing. So we have to connect it. 25 were in the following way. We tried this it on the side of the fiber that is finishing in this way on a continue with both together like that. Okay, we'll continue. So we will work the two fivers together so that they don't unravel suggesting here, just the fibers. Frustrating straightening them out on. We continue. That's it. You can see we're working with the fibers together, and they're not unraveling. Okay, so now we have a secure half of the base. So now it's a good momento. Flip it on. Continue the other half. Here we go. So to continue the weary, I have to place it on top of the drawing. I place the wood. So I put pressure with my I wait so that the fiber does not move, and I continue. So this is the work this fiber from this thing is called The warp Okay of these aren't warps on what? In placing what I'm going to place now. It's called the West. I place it in groups off eight. Same with the first half. So this is west. The blood is the weft here. Then I pressed with my fingers. I press so I can bend. I can do the weaving. The stone will always help us so that the fiber does not move and always having with your fingers so that the fiber Bence correctly like that. Okay, basically, we're repeating the steps off the first half, so you know how to do it. Always spread the fibers correctly so that they're not groups on one side. Try toe, stand them. So Also, the color combination is is noticeable Here we have, like a big group, so I have to spread them out a little bit. There we go. Now we can continue always. When using the signature, use your fingers. And so place your fingers there so you can help bending the fiber like this. These fingers here on bent the fiber like that. No more fiber. A group of fires like this. So as you can see, it's the same steps every time. Sure, its center. So you have to pull so that the weaving does not come out shrunken. So in this case here, as you can see, there's this fiber that shrunk up it. So you just pull has traded out. That's it. Okay, that's it. So we're finishing the other side, the whole around the shape. Okay, Sport of it. Off yellow. Here, here, we can put eight fivers. I went with four fivers because if not, if I put a, he would go over the line. So I just put for five hours. No, I will begin to secure the circle or the rounded shape in the same way as we previously did . So again, this is the war, and this is the worst. So? So we have to something's grab to warps on two webs just to give shape to the round the base. So you need to count. Ah, for in this case. But it depends on the product size. If it's a larger product, it can be six. Or if it's even bigger, it could be six or even 10 fibers en route. So here we are, taking the war on the work on together were forming a new work. So what, we continue, we're going to with both the work on the West. Okay, well, now, which will I lift this group of fibers? And this They were here. I pass it behind of this war that I have just created. Like that. You see, it is a bit that this fiber becomes habit twisted. That's okay. We repeat the same like that. Yeah. You must be careful that you're weaving on top of the line of the mold a role times because if not, it won't be around that shape. It would be some other favor. Figure. Okay, Some weight. No, I'm changing the position of the wood because it would help us helps us a lot so that the base comes out Well, because if I don't use this word, then the fiber moves. So place if I the wood there. So now it's according that. So it won't move. Now let's continue. And the U. S and way Groups of four passing the warp behind it. On adjusting like this every time, the same way By now you should have practice with this force again. If you have any questions, send us an email with and what part of the glass you're stuck in and we'll have will help out. We're here to help. So we're here for you to learn. This could be your hubby can be also a business for you. Whatever the reason, just have fun now. I finished the base. As you can see, it has a round shape. And to be able to soft in a bit the fiber we have to rub it with a rock. This is Neither comes the fiber comes out touristic toe, heart. So if at any point you saw some small detail points out for simple here there is, uh, fiber, this thinking out with the the needle you pull it a little bit on the waiting would come out better. Okay, That's how 6. Tie the base of the basket to the plastic mold you are using: Okay, so right now I'm going to place the mold here to continue working and securing it. But I have to you some fibers to secure it. So I'm gonna secure with the same fiber like this. Okay, Maybe it's better with that. You use instead of one used till fibers like that. Tell your nuts. Okay. So now how did that? Yeah, there we go. This way. The base will not move, and I will continue toe. I will be able to leave the rest of the basket photo to secure the base to them off. There are some spaces they have been left at the time of securing the outline. Ah, here. Some spaces there. You can place the fiber that secures the based on hold. So find those spaces and use them. Turn it around. And just correctly so that it does not move like that. They they're not here. So the basis not move like this accident? No. Uh, another fiber is needed here. Just grab another one and secure it the same way like that. That's just secured again. The nuts and the steps here. I should sleep them insight so that they don't bother. That's it. So here I have to send through the base correctly, double the mold like this 7. Begin the first and second levels of the sides of the basket: Okay, so now please the mold A lot of the lab or or on top of your legs, A OK, so we're going to use this fiber that we had left from earlier steps. And we have also warps form. This is work. This will be the West eso we grab the warm that we created with the left hand with the right hand we've with this a fiber here, remember this fiber? It comes from earlier steps. There we go. So that's all we have to as the fiber behind the work. The words that we have created earlier here I want to make what is called the visible fitting because I'm running out off a fiber. Just insert. If I were here and work the fibers so that it won't unraveled, we can continue just the same steps racing the work with the left hand with her right hand , we do the work. So here is where a joint which has did and so it won't unravel. As you can see here, it's and we continue. So with raise the work with the left hand and with right hand to the west, - the's weaving can be done on a chair are on a table. It's not complicated as when we were doing the base. This is an easier step. When it's a bigger product, it will be hard to make it on a table. But if it's small, it will. It will be There would be no problem. So this part I was explaining. You can do it anywhere you want the base that we did earlier. It can't be done in a table if the basis model, it can be done in a table. But this one is bigger. Okay, so here the fiber has broken. So we have to make a visible fitting as the one before. Make sure the basis will center make sure the basic well centred on the wall. Okay, so I'm gonna grab another fibre. I'm gonna create 15 or join the same way with earlier. So enter here. It started here and continue working with both of them so it won't unravel 8. Grow the sides of the basket as high as you want: we're entering the third it turn around the weaving. So we're repeating the same steps before they're very easy steps faster, web around the work on a just like this. This repetitions is what creates the sites of the basket. So, as I said before, it is important to use in both hands the left on the right one. In this case, we're using both hands with the left. We live the work, which is this and with the weaving with the right, the west, Which is this. Okay, so we continue lift the work and do the weeding. Lift the war on the weaving. This is something. This is something that you have to perform constantly lift the work under the weaving. This is called the compact technique. So the first the base was done with this to real technique. This this decisive being doing are being done with compact technique. So here you're using for this basket Two different types off techniques. Let's continue. I will show you step by step so you can see the steps. Repeat it several times from different points of view of the camera. And again, if you have questions to send us an email. So here we're finishing again. The fiber that those the weaving. So now we're going to do another another joint here, the finishing where the five or finishes introduced this shredder. Sure, there's the fiber there on pulled home in the anti pinata made war went through those the wire. We take another fiber of the same size. I'm thickness we inserted in the threat er and we put and that's how we get another fiber and we can continue working. We can continue weaving something that I want to be very clear with. Is that this technique? This this technique used a where the base is different from the picnic used to the sites. There's a history letting Nick on the side uses the compact. So we're using here so different techniques. So where finishing the tip of the fiber going through those uncertain the threat er we inserted inside and we put and the been on the penultimate or insert the shredder, I would certainly need fiber and we put like this we obtain another longer with we're going to continue. Do not forget to use both hands to be able to move forward faster and easier way years for the left and the right hand perfect. Something additional. I want to explain that when a fiber is left with shrink, grab it and pull it. There is a fire that has shrunk, identify and pull. We look for fibers that have have shrunken the strait of them here as well. That's it. There. This there's another one. Just pull carefully pulled. That's it on. Let's continue. Okay, But now A. We are You're beginning to see the product, how it's going to be the basket. So now it's all repetition. Make sure that just it's all repetition. This is how we leave. The sites. Just have toe, have some patients, but little by little, it will come out. Here we go. So that's repeating steps. I'm going through this quickly because I have already shown you so thoroughly the steps so But I got to go through this a bit quicker, so the class, if really would be too long. Okay, well, now I will place this decorative Freeman. The place is decorative ribbon. I will have to lose thes two extra tips like that's just with the threat. Er so lose them. So they're not visible, inserted the threat. Er, insert the back, pass the fiber behind the warp and pull. Where it started is where the fiber has to get lost so you can notice the difference with worried started. 9. Begin a colorfull and decorative ribbon and choose its colors: so no, I'm going to teach you how this ribbon is abraded. This is the core of their free one. So we're gonna choose to make it the same colors as the one I have Here s so it's two reds . I went to get threats that fibers should be homogeneous to read one yellow Onda also Ah, one pink. There we go things or folks here also to green. Israel has to greens on DA. We have the green on also a purple. So then so I want to recommend that the fibers 1/2 different colors. So she's checking that we have all the colors. No, I already have this one on this one. Okay, so the fire was I have here have have ah different colors. So if you place for example, similar colors, it would be so attractive He will lose the colors. For example, if you put a light green with a dark green, you will lose a bit the one of the colors. So I have 2468 There should be 34 There should be nine. So for 6/8 there. So there's one color missing which Calder is missing. I miss him. This one here 10. Make the ribbon as long as you want: okay. The ribbon is made up of several fibers. This one is made off nine fibers. The wonderment explain is made of nine fibers, but it can be 11 15 or 20 fibers. It depends on the thickness of the ribbon we want to make or on the customer's request. So I want to start the river now. First, I will let me find the small piece of fiber a certain or even I have to take it up so there is no chance of the fiber to loosen up. Okay, so I have sight the fiber. Then I will separate thes virus into two groups. Expect to mix the colors up. So I will separate it into two groups. A group of four fibers on the left and a group of five fibers on the right. I want to start to work a the river where there are five fibers. So I separate this one. Then two fivers go down until the fibers go up. And I passed this one through there through the middle. And this goes to the left Now in the same way either the left side Here on the left side, there are 55 hours. So I said for a dead one, I leave too. And I left toe past the one like that through the middle. Now there are five on here. Therefore So I start where there are five separate this one on to go below on this one I lived. I present through here this fiber to the left. That's it. Now, on the left there are five fibers. So do fibers go down then then left this to a person through here and so one until you finish all the river. It is exactly the same steps all the way. The lawyer is one here passing through. I'm doing it now in slow motion. But it's the same steps all the time. Okay? And I repeat. So one more time I would repeat where there are 55 hours. That's where I start. That's what I started to read the weave and I would because right now, on the right, there are five fibers, so I started right there on the right. Now there are five hours in the left, so I started the week there. Alright, right. There's a separate. I leave here, the stool on through here. I pass the fiber your site that said Now this fiber, I can leave it like this. So not so. It's not too confused here. Then I pass it through the middle. So there, Right, I leave this the fibers and I raise and I raise this one on through there. I pass it. Does this fight now from the left elite? I leave this fiber I put down these two five hours on days I picked them up and through their I pacified. That is all the weaving you Until you finish the number of meters you want to do, you can do 100 meters, 200 meters or 300 meters, exactly the same steps. So again there we have nine fibers for are separated to one side. I'm five are separate to the other side. You start to weave where there are five fighters. That is all that is all you need to know for the weaving of this river are or actually this is a break. This is rating. So just continue like this until you reach the amount of me meters you need you can make a different kind of products ornaments a different kind of clothes handbags. It is also used to make hand pan books. So I made this presentation on how to make this braiding. Now let's continue with the next step, which is to finish the basket. 11. Now add the ribbon to the basket for as a decorative finishing: Okay, So I will start by lifting a warp on leaving another one. Please watch carefully. So I left the world on. The other one is left like this. Okay. Okay. So now place the ribbon like this. I know this movement. How does this work? Pulling the warps a little bit so that they don't not get a loose. So to make sure they don't get loose, I will I will tie Take it up like this with the same fiber in this way. So it does not move. And then here also a small not like this Like that Something easy So it can be when you need it. You can untie it now Continue pulling. And so that it doesn't get lose or move. I have to secure it as before. With a little not I can tell you with the same fire like this it won't move. Continue. This goes back. I left the warps. I left one and I leave one like this. Like this. Perfect. So the river actually has become Ah West. And these are still the warps. These were the works. Okay, bring them down like this The same way I will not here. I put the room back on. I continue leave thing and leaving the warps just as before. Same steps here. Try to use my left hand because if I use their right, then the reward would be stretched. Well, that's why I use my left hand. So I have a little nuts here. Here we go. Now here, we're going to do Ah, fitting this. We're going to cut this. Not with the sisters. There's no was made so that it wouldn't unravel. Now I'm going to cut it. Let's see this detail here toe have left on the foot because there is not to lift. But I should leave it there. And I do the fitting. Our joint. I secure it here. I see here by tying it so that so that it doesn't unravel. Same here and also here like this. So one more here. That's it. So we have put the ribbon 12. Continue weaving the sides after adding the ribbon: to finish this work I'm going to use to fibers you can't make enough here because they're not would be too noticeable. So what you do is you place the two fivers in this way and you cross them and you keep them in this position. And then you take a war place like this. The two bent fibers and that's it. You start to work. Okay? So I have put the fiber in this way. Now I lift the warp and then the weft. I passed the weft by the foot of the work like this and they pull the yellow and the blue. I lived another war. Then I'm going to weave with a yellow one. I lived a warp. I bust by the foot of the warp. I pull the warp. And also the west which is this weapon west. That's it. I just think I left the warp I'm going toe with with a blue fiber In this way I pulled the yellow and the blue. I lived the warp I pulled this little Ah, Not then Pass it below the warp. Pull the west and pull the work. I lift the warp, I pass the blue fiber by the foot of the warp. I pulled the west, which is this and pull the work here so that the women comes out well like this. Done. Now we repeat the same steps. So you lift the work, pass the fiber by the foot of the warp in a twisted way and you keep pulling like this. This fiber is the one that works. This one goes behind. See? Okay, now, this bro, this broke. So I'm going to go back a few steps and I insert the fiber here. I will work the two fibers together. This visible piece that we do, we do it this way because we don't have. We've we have away. If we wouldn't insert the wire into the weave and take another another fibre. But here we can't because we're just starting with the weave. So we do the fitting or the joint by putting two other two fibers, the one that will end and the one that is going to start. Okay, so we lift the warp, then this fiber, but the warp and will always pull okay again. It broke. I will get another one way will repeat as we did before I inserted in this way. I grabbed the two together and continue the two together. Okay, so this is Ah, exactly us. We pre really leading the the fitting or the joint. And we repeat the steps. We left the warp. Then we do the whiff like this by the foot off the warp. Then we pull the two lefts and also the work. Always pull. Okay, now here There's some extra ribbon so that it so that it doesn't get in the way. We're going to cut it, pulling a little, pulling a little so that you can't eso that the cut is not too visible. And that's it. Now we continue, we lift the warp. Then we do the weaving in this away. Pull the left and also pull the work. Lift the warp as the left by the foot of the warp and pull one more time We lift the warp We passed the fire by the foot of the war. Pull the both pull both fibers and also the work. That's it. - Always be careful not to take the fiber from the other side because then it would come out crust always the same steps. You have questions while you're doing this. Don't forget, you can always send us an email. As you can see, since their four groups of 45 hours, we can control it because there is a group of three. It means that we didn't pick up Ah, fiber. So in this case, for example, the fiber has broken. Then I'm we're going to complete all four fibers. So what do I do? I want to insert the wire here and then the piece of fiber. There we go. Now. I already have four fibers. There can't be more than the necessary fibers for for each little group. So in this case, for example, they are for a fibers. It's group, and I have to maintain that number until the end. Okay. Here. We're missing one. We can use one of the leftover fibers from before It will be useful. There we go. Okay. So we have gone around the more than we have almost finished. The the first they way around, we continually a little bit more repeating the same steps. It's always the same steps. Okay, so we have arrived. The where we started this glasses 13. Weave your way up to the top of basket with detail on the color: Okay, so we will continue in the same way. But here before a keeping on working there is a detail that I would like to explain. So ah, what is important is that the colors switch. So I'm working with yellow and blue So yellow house toe past the blue on blue to yellow and yellow tableau. If Jello wants to yellow, you have tow Correct it. So I'm going to explain it here. You will see here here is yellow with yellow. But we don't want that. We went to a lot of loot. I will show you how we want it because this is the compact technique. You see it like this has to go blue to yellow and yellow tableau like in a spiral way. So I will continue. So basically, it's the same work, but with a different order of colors. So always the next line widow A You switch the order of colors and in this way it would look more attractive. Now we should through the same steps over and over. And you do as many lines as as you wish your your your basket to be a Zayas. You wish your basket to be with anti neo during the same steps. So here there's a fiber missing. So I have to insert one. There are three fivers and there should before. So let's add one more fiber into this. You can add it in this way. That's it. Now we have four fibers. So here we're finishing the two fivers almost at the same time. So what are we going to? Let's create a new of fitting or joint off the blue fiber in the same way as we have done earlier. Insert the fiber and then you work them together, the two of them together in the same way Here. Try to just a fiber so that the this joint does not feel too white. Two white. So that's it. They're now. So you're now have obtained to new long fibers. You can continue weaving, so you lift the world and the weft is done in the following way like this. Lift the warp on. Do the weft lift the warp and this fiber passage below the warp Ample. - Okay , so we're already approaching. Ah, the third line or the third left of this. Come back, We've ah, it's a complex with technique in spiral, you will begin to see a spiral soon as you can see here how the color switch positions. And this we will finish in the same way. We will do all the height of the mall we have here. So just continue doing the same thing until you reached the height of the mold you were working with. Okay? So from now on, it's repetition, repetition and repetition the same steps. This face is just repeating the same steps as we have previously previously learned. - So since this is just repetition A, we will let you advance on this. Ah, we will do a little fast forward for the next class. 14. Repeat same steps until you finish the sides to your desired height.: Okay. So, as I said, I have We have done a little fast forward. So I finished weaving the sites. And now I want to take out the mold in this way. Just untie everything. We had died here, so just being careful so you don't deform the mold. So I said we did a little fast forward because it was just the same steps over and over for the sites. And now I finished that. And that's it. So once it is finished, you have to take into account a detail. It has to be. You must adjust all the parts this material has been inserted has to be leveled like this. Just, uh, well, the fibers. A little bit to adjust. Take your time doing this. - There we go. Adjust each one of them. Almost there. Well, it's done. Now we have to check these sites over here. The site says something shrink. So have toe pull a little bit. If the pool the material that has shrunken like this, whatever you see that is shrinking. Put pull out a little there. And also here it's done 15. Cut leftover tips: Okay, so now I'm going to cut all the leftover tips. Just They're being careful that you don't cut any finishings. This step is easy, but just be careful not to cut the finishings. Okay, so we cut the part leftover on the top. Now, let's cut this part here. It's just pulling a little. I hear this of a shrunken. Yes. So just pull a little. That's it. That's it. Carefully pulling a little bit. Five hours like that, B. That's it. - Okay . Like that. Almost done here. I want to explain a detail. If we make Ah, simple cut. It will be visible when we cut. But if you pull a little a little bit down downwards, then it is going to hide a little. So that's just a little secret, I tell you. So I'm finishing. Okay, that's it. This piece that has remained in sight, you also have to cut it. This one here. There we go. Now we should have to cover the contour so you don't see the cut parts 16. Begin weaving the lining of the basket: So I took cover a controller or to the lining. We have inserted the fiber in tornado, and now we're going to place the fighters to cover it. So it's a first to insert the needle on the second line, starting from the top or the second left. That's it. Pull the fiber. Now this fiber of we will flip it here to the other side. And now I will place nine fibers on top, and we will insert the fiber again in the spaces that are left in the weaving. Also in the second line, starting from the top. That's it. This little tip left that it's left. Here we leave it. Ah, because it will. Ah, it will prevent the the covering from loosening. So now we continue. I inserted again to wear starting from the top below. That's it and continually continue covering. So again, this nine fibers goes like that for on its site on one on top. So the cut parts will be well covered. We continue here and the second Web starting from the top who inserted and pass it to the other side with a little care. So pull in this way, poor pressing with your fingers, using your fingers. So one more time to the other side. That's it. Two more through the other side insurgent here and to the other side inserted here. And it comes out on the other side first here and then to the other side and just continue this way now is it is just the repetition. We continue just same steps. - We're almost finishing just same steps all the way to the end. 17. Final step of the basket...you made it!: So im already finishing the lining of the basket of the top parts where the cut was made. So the finishing is done in the following way. We have to cover all the fiber that was started with the one Hey we're going to finish with in this way. That's insert the needle or it was inserted at the beginning. I think that And here we do have to adjust well so that the fiber fitting is not visible. That's it. Now, this tip that it's left over is here. We're going to lose it so it can't. It can't be seen. No, I'm going to cut the remaining tips on. Once we cut all this remaining tips, the basket will be finished. Okay, that's it. On some tips here and basket finished. 18. Summary of all the steps taken to make the basket: Well, we have reached through the end of the making of this product. It is finished. I believe you have seen ah, all the steps. So we started with the base which was made in a sterile A technique. Then we continued the sites with a compact technique. We also added as an adornment abraded ribbon. We continued with spiral shell shaped ornaments. Ah, and finally with the lining with fiber. So you couldn't s so you can see the left over a fiber cuts. So this is the product. As you can see, with a little bit of interest, you can do a product of any size or any other figure, whether it issued military in the curative or, ah, artistic, thank you very much for your time. 19. About the teacher: My name is Jose Manuel. Bogus. I am from Cajamarca. It's Ah region in battle. So this activity I have dedicated myself since I was a child because my parents actually made a floors for Germany made off vegetable fibre. So I began, since I was very small to learn on work. After finishing my studies, I traveled to Lima, the capital of Peru, and I dedicated myself to work in other type of businesses. But after a short time, I visited a market off crafts dilemma. There was a stand where there was a handbag hanging and this handbag was made up of a fiber and I approached this other and us her about the handbag. She she asked me if I knew how to make those handbags. I said Yes, of course. So she told me to make a sample. So that night I went home. I prefer the sample on target to hurt the next day. A week later, she asked me to make a dozen of the same handbooks so all of the sample had been sold very quickly. So after 15 days, I breath her That doesn't on day after a week, she calls me again and tells me that she needs 100 handbooks. So that's how it started. I bought more material on I began producing, so I took around 20 days to make those often 1st 100 hand backs. Well, she bientot us more and more and more, and not not only hurt her but other sellers from other stents in the market on a little bit . Little That's how I met a exporters and importers. Andi. I was really happy because I really liked the craft with best of a fight. So So I began to think, Why not have a closer relationship with exporters and importers? But I didn't know anything about business. So I signed signed up in the incident off foreign trade on the which was from the Ministry of Foreign Trade in Peru. There I learned that I had to be able to export. I had to create my own company, so that's what I did. It's called Export the finished Okkas, and that's how it began to contact importers and exporters on the business began to work. I also worked. I worked with several countries. I sold the lot Argentina, Colombia, Venezuela, the United States also to France and England. There was quite a lot of movement off merchandise, so I decided to dedicate myself completely to the production off these crafts you until today. So through through through these years, I have created a new kinds of techniques and like the surreal a technique that I will teach the scores on the loom weaving technique which is done on the floor. I also a created A round handles flat handles, So I tried to use creativity in my my products on designing my products. That is why the business has a thrives on you have gone completely devoted to this way of living. Also, the Ministry, off a production and tourism here in Peru, hires me to train in other artists ants in vestibule, fiber weaving. Ah, so I always travel for the government for regional governments on also for with NGOs to train in native communities so that they can make a good quality product because they were good workers. But there is something miss are missing the quality finishings. It's another select people that already know me, and I'm really happy that they can also do their their own products with a high quality. So that's that is what I'm most interested in teaching others I want other artisans to be able to do also. Good product. So So I have seen this in this for many years. More than 60 years working with festival fiber, winning on. I work with different kinds off fibers. I work with juncos, which you can find here in Lima, but also with a bull rush, the muse and also find here in Lima he came like material like the willow that Kia palm that grows in the jungle. The Zambia that also rose in the jungle. Italian came or read. It also works in the jungle. Tom she Lacey tree along, then thrown, which are fibers that grow in the jungle. So I have dedicated myself to work with all of these fibers that can be found in Khost in the mountains and the jungles. Really happy with my work on the project? I elaborate on what this is. The things beautiful. Multicolored basket is what I'm gonna teach you. So we joined me on You will earn. You will learn how to make this
