Teachers and pupils want to create an haberdashery elements workart taking inspiration from Modigliani. Among his most famous portraits they choose to reproduce "Head of a woman in a hat".
In 1906, Modigliani settled in Paris, where he encountered the works of Henri de Toulouse-Lautrec and Pablo Picasso (in his "blue period"). The strong influence of Paul Cezanne's paintings is clearly evident, both in Modigliani's deliberate distortion of the figure and the free use of large, flat areas of color.
The team needs colorful buttons and the warm glue gun.
At the end of the work we are satisfied and happy, so Alessio takes a picture of us.
Look at the result!

Before we start the actual weaving, we should learn a few basic concepts. Pedig always have before knitting a few minutes to soak in water. Just as we constantly knitting during soaking unfinished product (but we care not to unnecessarily plywood bottom). Water should be lukewarm to us .Each basket consists of three parts:
braid bottom warp rods (or own production floor)
string (knit two, three, four bars ..)
closure of warp beams
So now what to do (production cart with solid plywood bottom). Prepare the warp rods. These are the rods that are sticking out from the bottom up and we create around them . Warp beams should have the same length. Here we determine by a simple formula:
required amount of trash + 5-8 cm at the bottom of braid + 20 cm at roadblock
(If we wanted to weave a complex roadblock, I prefer to still add 10 cm)
Rods must be cut as much as we holes in the bottom. The ends of the rods the tip, we will work with them better.
While we watch the weaving, warp rods to keep straight. If you want to Basket either widened or narrowed, we start in this direction warp and bend rods. The change is apparent to us after about two to three rows. Spokes always will end at the same place as we started (braided into a spiral, so that otherwise would be on one side of the basket higher).
Roadblock properly tightened, the ends are nicely kept. After drying rack (next day) commandments projecting rods and paint the basket.
