Make basket bags and interior goods! The second rattan knitting online course
This is a craft class to make bags and storage boxes by weaving rattan (rattan), a natural material. It is for people with experience in rattan knitting, and you can learn new techniques such as square bottoms and oval bottoms that were not taught in the first installment. Comes with a rattan knitting booklet, and the calculation method for rattan cores will also be shown to the public so that you can make a basket of your choice.
Hello. I'm Mika Murayama from CASCA who uses rattan to make things.
In the first installment, they learned how to knit round soles. In the second installment, you will be asked to challenge even more advanced knitting methods and different variations of shapes.
The content is helpful for those who have touched rattan to some extent, but have never tried shapes other than round bottoms, and those who have tried but couldn't do it the way they expected!
We make square and oval bottom baskets that combine different techniques.
I will mainly tell you how to knit square-bottomed and oval-bottomed baskets. New techniques will also be incorporated into the handle knitting method and the side pattern knitting.
If you take the second class, you will gain even more application skills, and the range of making your own basket bags and interior goods will increase dramatically. Technically, the content has been leveled up, but we plan to incorporate ingenuity everywhere so that it can be created as easily as possible.
Even for first-time users, I will explain each one, including the techniques I told you about in the first installment.
Two square-bottomed baskets, such as storage boxes and trays, are made using different techniques
Build a toolbox using types so that there are no failures. (How to make a lid will be posted in the original text.)
I also make openwork bread trays.
You should be able to make the depth and size of the tray to your liking. Try making a tray that is both practical for everyday use.
You will learn 3 techniques while making a basket with an oval bottom that is stylish to put on and easy to carry
By applying the round bottom knitting method, I will make a basket with an oval bottom. A basket with a large gusset is easy to use in the house. You can use it as a round basket or as a basket to decorate plants.
We also make antique-style baskets incorporating decorative knitting techniques.
Originally, you will acquire skills by making several similar shapes and then moving on to the next shape, but this time you will be asked to try new shapes more and more.
First, I would like you to make various baskets and know how to knit them. And I want them to practice on their own and improve their skills.
We will touch not only on how to knit baskets, but also on how to handle leather and cloth
I will tell you how to wrap leather around the handle and sew it. The bag is even more comfortable to use.
You can learn techniques to make an inner bag according to the size of the basket and sew it to the main body of the basket. If you learn how to do it and arrange it with a fabric of your favorite color or pattern, you can make an original bag rich in personality.
If you change it every season, you should be able to enjoy it in a different atmosphere.
I will also show you how to make small items using rattan scraps that have been left over a little.
When making baskets, there is often a surplus of short rattan.
Here are some small items that can be made using such a short rattan core or a rattan core that has just been left over.
If you're new to rattan, I'd like you to try making it as a break-in.
The calculation method according to the size you want to make is also open to the public!
In the bonus chapter, I will also introduce a calculation method for determining the number and length of rattan cores for square-bottom/oval-bottomed baskets that match the size of the basket to be made.
I would like you to make a practical basket that is the size of the basket you want to make and that can also be displayed as an interior decoration.
All kit purchasers will receive an original booklet limited to CLASS101
A booklet will be attached to the kit so that you can look back at it even after the viewing period is over. In addition to the 6 works produced in class, this is a special edit with recipes for 3 more works added as applications.
❗️ For those who purchase “class tickets only” without a kit, I plan to introduce the contents in the class notebook.
I hope you can make a basket of your choice!
When attending the course
In this class, we sell kits selected by creators. Go to “See the Kit” for more information about the kit and recommended materials and tools for taking this class.
If you are a beginner in rattan knitting, why don't you take the first course “Made with Natural Rattan - Mini Basket, Bag, Accessory -”?
Q1. What is the difference between the first “Made with natural rattan - mini basket, bag, accessories -” and the second “Made with natural rattan - oval and square basket bags/interior goods -”?
A. What is the second bulletThis class is designed to be structured for intermediate students.There are plenty of techniques I couldn't introduce in the first installment!In the first installment, I learned how to knit round bottoms, and mainly made basket bags. In the second installment, we will challenge even more advanced knitting methods and different variations of shapes. The technique of knitting oval bottoms and square bottoms is slightly more difficult, but it expands the range of bags and interior goods that can be made!
Q2. Is it OK to take this class even if I don't take the first course?
A. The content of the second class is a bit difficult for complete beginners. If you have knitted with different materials such as kraft tape, I think it's fine, but if possible, I recommend taking the first course. I'll start watching the second video in April, so I think it's a good idea to break in with the first one until then.
After graduating from Musashino Art University, he joined the Shiki Theater Company Costume Club.
After leaving the team, I freelance and worked on costume production, production, and design for Toho stage, Johnny's, AKB48, and NHK moms.
Rattan works are sold at general stores in Tokyo, Kanagawa, Osaka, Hyogo, etc. We are also participating in special exhibitions where people have heard their voices. Opportunities have decreased recently, but we are also exhibiting at events.
The rattan knitting class at home is also at my own pace, but it has finally resumed.
I met Rattan Weaver on Penang Island, Malaysia, where my husband was assigned. The English name for rattan comes from the Malay language.
Most of the raw materials for rattan knitting are native to Indonesia, which is next to Malaysia, and they are incorporated a lot into our daily lives, and I was able to get the materials cheaply, so I was able to get started easily.
Q. What points did you put the most effort into when planning the class?
Since the number of baskets that can be made in class is limited, we have devised ways to introduce as many techniques as possible for different uses, different shapes, and as many techniques as possible.
I think what is difficult for those who have started rattan knitting is to knit while controlling multiple rattan cores at once, and to knit them into the shape you want to make with your own free hand.
In order to eliminate these as much as possible, I will show you how to knit using a mold and how to make knitting easier if you start knitting. As you gradually get used to it, you'll be able to knit without using these methods.
Q. Please give a message to the students!
Of course, you will enjoy wicker knitting, which can be made with few tools, but I hope you will also enjoy learning how to combine cloth and leather, and how to process them.
Once you understand the basic knitting method and structure of rattan knitting, you can knit in the size and shape of your choice. I hope you will be able to make a variety of things even after learning basic knitting techniques through this class.
