I'm Ricky, I live in Bristol.

0:00:020:00:06

I work as an animator, which is lucky, because I love art.

0:00:060:00:11

I live for art. I even dream of art.

0:00:110:00:13

I draw, I paint, I make things.

0:00:130:00:17

Nailed it!

0:00:190:00:21

I hang out with my mates, Gavin, Rich and Sarah.

0:00:210:00:24

-Agh!

-Most importantly, I make ninja moves.

0:00:240:00:28

Some people call me the...

0:00:280:00:31

Art Ninja!

0:00:310:00:33

Today I'll show you how to make a sock dispenser that's pretty sweet.

0:00:330:00:38

There's anarchic art with Westwood-inspired punk patches,

0:00:380:00:42

and we get in a flap with this

0:00:420:00:44

animation that will send you barking.

0:00:440:00:46

Because today it's...

0:00:460:00:48

Day of the Fashion.

0:00:490:00:51

It's a new day. I'd better get my ninja on.

0:00:550:00:58

And my clothes!

0:00:580:01:00

-Oi, oi!

-Oi!

-Oi!

-Oi!

-Oi, oi!

-Oi!

0:01:100:01:13

Ya!

0:01:150:01:16

Hiya, Ricks.

0:01:200:01:22

Ugh.

0:01:220:01:24

Are you not going to congratulate me?

0:01:240:01:26

For what, wearing ridiculous clothing?

0:01:260:01:28

I think not. Catch you later.

0:01:280:01:30

I can't un-see that.

0:01:320:01:33

If I don't ask him what he's up to, he won't go away.

0:01:330:01:36

Oh, he's gone.

0:01:380:01:40

It doesn't get weirder than that.

0:01:400:01:42

The winner of Bristol's best dressed personality has been announced,

0:01:440:01:49

and it's Gavin.

0:01:490:01:52

-Gavin?

-The annoying best mate of the Art Ninja.

0:01:520:01:57

So, things do get weirder.

0:01:570:01:59

I can't believe Gavin won.

0:01:590:02:01

Now I've got a much better idea of something you can do with fashion.

0:02:010:02:05

It's the Art Ninja gumball sock dispenser.

0:02:050:02:08

I've got a big bit of card here.

0:02:080:02:10

And with a pen and a ruler,

0:02:100:02:11

I'm going to draw out the main shapes that make my sock dispenser.

0:02:110:02:15

I'm starting by drawing the front.

0:02:150:02:17

I'm just going to draw a little door here for where the socks

0:02:170:02:20

are going to roll out. And the back.

0:02:200:02:23

This is going to be my little ramp for the socks to roll down.

0:02:230:02:26

And as the bit that holds my socks is going to be made from recycled

0:02:270:02:30

salad bowls, I'm going to draw around it to make sure it fits.

0:02:300:02:35

I'm also drawing around this tube in the same place

0:02:350:02:38

on the front and the back.

0:02:380:02:40

Now, I need to cut these out, but I'm going to use my ninja skills.

0:02:400:02:43

Ya!

0:02:430:02:44

Here is the back of my dispenser.

0:02:480:02:50

I'm going to make some sides using a long piece of card.

0:02:500:02:54

Put some masking tape underneath

0:02:540:02:56

the back and then lay my edge next to it,

0:02:560:02:58

folding it up at a right angle.

0:02:580:02:59

Once it's stuck nicely, fold it round the edges.

0:02:590:03:03

Some more masking tape to hold it in place.

0:03:030:03:05

Fold round the other edge.

0:03:050:03:07

I really want to make these bits of tape as neat as possible as they

0:03:100:03:13

will become details better.

0:03:130:03:14

Now I'm going to put in the ramp.

0:03:140:03:15

And when the socks drop down, this will help them roll out.

0:03:150:03:19

While I've got this open,

0:03:190:03:20

I'm going to make the spindle which is the turn-y bit.

0:03:200:03:23

For that I'm going to use a cardboard tube.

0:03:230:03:25

And I've got some pieces of card that I've doubled up

0:03:250:03:27

and wrapped in masking tape so they're nice and thick.

0:03:270:03:30

I'm going to glue these on the side of my spindle with some strong glue.

0:03:300:03:33

You'll need three of these.

0:03:360:03:37

And I'm going to hold them in place with some masking tape.

0:03:370:03:40

And I'm making sure I'm sticking these down equally spaced.

0:03:410:03:45

Into the hole there.

0:03:460:03:48

Then I'm going to pop on the front.

0:03:480:03:51

And I'm going to hold this in place with some masking tape.

0:03:510:03:53

There we go. Now I'm going to put on the top.

0:03:530:03:56

That's the main body of my sock dispenser.

0:04:000:04:03

The little turn-y bit going in there.

0:04:030:04:05

I'm going to give it a lick of paint.

0:04:050:04:07

I'm using red. If you're doing this at home,

0:04:070:04:10

make sure you put down some paper to protect your surfaces.

0:04:100:04:14

I'm painting the main body but I'm leaving these masked off pieces as

0:04:140:04:17

they're going to be painted silver.

0:04:170:04:19

Painting the ramp on the inside.

0:04:210:04:22

Now I'm going to move onto the silver.

0:04:240:04:26

Because the masking tape isn't painted, the silver shows up better.

0:04:280:04:31

I'm also painting the spindle silver.

0:04:340:04:36

Now the paint is dry, I'm adding some details with a black pen.

0:04:370:04:40

I'm making these areas of silver paint look like strips of metal.

0:04:420:04:45

I'm doing that by adding little circles that look like rivets.

0:04:470:04:51

All right, now it's time to make the clear ball that holds the socks.

0:04:510:04:54

I'm making it from two recycled salad bowls.

0:04:540:04:57

I've cut the bottom off one right to the edge

0:04:570:04:59

and to the inner ridge on this one.

0:04:590:05:01

You might want to ask an adult to help you cut these because

0:05:010:05:04

plastic can be quite sharp.

0:05:040:05:06

I'm going to stick these together with some strong glue.

0:05:060:05:09

I'm going to glue it to the top of my dispenser.

0:05:090:05:11

Make sure it's straight.

0:05:150:05:16

I've got a couple of silver lids here that I'm going to glue onto the

0:05:160:05:20

ends of my roll. Now it's time to add some socks.

0:05:200:05:22

Maybe a few more.

0:05:240:05:25

I've also made a lid from card circles and masking tape.

0:05:250:05:29

Right, let's see if it works.

0:05:290:05:31

Sweet!

0:05:350:05:37

Can't decide what socks to wear?

0:05:370:05:39

Let this little gadget decide for you.

0:05:390:05:41

You don't have to make this gumball sock dispenser.

0:05:450:05:47

I predict that you could make this mystical fortune-telling dispenser.

0:05:470:05:51

Turn the handle to predict your future.

0:05:520:05:54

Or how about this alien dispenser?

0:05:560:05:58

It's a real space saver.

0:05:590:06:00

HE SIGHS

0:06:020:06:04

I'm so annoyed at the Bristol Best Dressed thing.

0:06:040:06:06

It should have been me.

0:06:060:06:08

I'm going to write a strongly-worded e-mail to the organisers.

0:06:080:06:11

That'll show 'em.

0:06:110:06:12

KNOCKING

0:06:120:06:14

Oh, who's that?

0:06:140:06:15

Ahh!

0:06:150:06:17

Oh!

0:06:200:06:22

Uh!

0:06:220:06:23

Oh, hey, Sarah, what are you doing here?

0:06:280:06:30

I was a judge for Bristol's Best Dressed Personality.

0:06:300:06:33

I think we might have made a terrible mistake.

0:06:330:06:35

That is an incredible look.

0:06:350:06:36

-What are calling it?

-Oh, this?

0:06:360:06:38

The Paint Pot?

0:06:400:06:41

I need to call the other judges.

0:06:430:06:44

-They need to hear about this.

-What?

0:06:440:06:47

-No, wait.

-Oh, this is so now!

0:06:470:06:51

I can't believe they think the Paint Pot is fashionable.

0:06:550:06:59

Call that style?

0:06:590:07:01

Are you one of the judges for Bristol's Best Dressed Personality?

0:07:010:07:05

No, I'm the famous fashion designer,

0:07:050:07:07

Dame Vivienne Westwood and I've been dressing Britain for years.

0:07:070:07:12

I do beg your pardon, Dame Vivienne.

0:07:120:07:15

I became famous during the punk rock era

0:07:150:07:18

and helped come up with the look.

0:07:180:07:20

In one of my fashion creations, I even used a toilet flush!

0:07:200:07:25

TOILET FLUSHES

0:07:250:07:26

Punks are all about doing what you want.

0:07:260:07:29

A bit like this.

0:07:290:07:31

Could you design something from me?

0:07:310:07:33

You'll have to join the queue, I'm afraid.

0:07:330:07:36

Well, I guess I'll have to design something myself then.

0:07:360:07:39

Exactly. Bye, Ricky.

0:07:390:07:41

-Don't be a fashion victim.

-Bye, Dame Vivienne.

0:07:410:07:45

Right, in Vivienne Westwood's honour,

0:07:460:07:49

I'm going to design some punk patches.

0:07:490:07:51

I'm going to start by cutting out three squares from these old jeans.

0:07:510:07:54

You can pick up some cheaply from a charity shop.

0:07:540:07:57

I'm going to fray my patches to give them a punk look.

0:07:570:08:00

I'm just grabbing the threads and pulling them out until the edges are

0:08:000:08:04

distressed. The great thing about this is, you don't have to be too

0:08:040:08:07

neat, you can distress it as much as you like.

0:08:070:08:09

I've got myself some white paint

0:08:110:08:13

and I'm going to roughly paint across each of my patches

0:08:130:08:16

in a kind of a anarchic zigzag pattern.

0:08:160:08:19

It will really make my designs pop.

0:08:190:08:22

Here we go.

0:08:220:08:23

While these are drying,

0:08:230:08:25

I'll get some print outs to transfer onto my punk patches.

0:08:250:08:28

There's Gav, a unicorn, and a guitar.

0:08:300:08:34

And I've printed out the word "cool" but the letters are backwards.

0:08:340:08:37

We'll get to that in a minute.

0:08:370:08:38

Using a ruler, I'm just going to tear out these shapes here,

0:08:380:08:42

because I want the edges to be straight but a little bit rough.

0:08:420:08:45

And on this one, I'm going to tear it a bit rougher with my fingertips.

0:08:470:08:51

This one, some scissors to give a zigzag design.

0:08:550:09:00

I'm going to glue my pictures onto my patches face down.

0:09:000:09:04

I'm using lots of PVA here.

0:09:040:09:06

Lots of PVA over the top.

0:09:090:09:10

I want these to be perfectly flat to my patch.

0:09:120:09:15

It might seem a bit strange but all will be revealed.

0:09:170:09:20

Right, now for the letters.

0:09:200:09:21

You'll need to print them out back to front

0:09:210:09:23

so that when you transfer them, they'll be round the right way.

0:09:230:09:27

If you're using multiple layers, the transfer that you want to be on top,

0:09:270:09:30

you need to put down first.

0:09:300:09:31

Put Gav over the top. Bye, Gavin.

0:09:340:09:37

I could wait for these to dry but I'm going to use my ninja skills.

0:09:390:09:43

Ya!

0:09:430:09:45

Using a little bowl of water,

0:09:450:09:47

I'm just going to wet my fingers and then rub the paper.

0:09:470:09:50

You don't want to rub too viciously

0:09:500:09:52

because it will rub away the ink as well. What it does is,

0:09:520:09:56

it rubs away the paper but leaves behind the ink from the printout.

0:09:560:09:59

It's like magic.

0:09:590:10:01

I can see Gav's face emerging.

0:10:010:10:03

A little tip here is to use some baby oil

0:10:070:10:09

because it makes any remaining paper go see through

0:10:090:10:12

and it makes the colours really vibrant.

0:10:120:10:15

Now that one's done, I need to do the same technique on the other two.

0:10:150:10:19

But I'm going to use my ninja skills.

0:10:190:10:21

Ya!

0:10:210:10:22

There we go. Check 'em out!

0:10:230:10:25

And these patches, I'm going to add to my backpack

0:10:260:10:29

using safety pins just like Vivienne Westwood.

0:10:290:10:31

Be careful if you're using safety pins because they can be sharp.

0:10:330:10:36

I think Vivienne would love this technique and I bet she'd love these

0:10:380:10:41

punk patches.

0:10:410:10:43

I think I've got this fashion designer thing...nailed.

0:10:460:10:50

My new look, the Paint Pot,

0:10:520:10:53

is getting loads of likes.

0:10:530:10:55

Everyone's wearing the Paint Pot.

0:11:030:11:05

Who'd have thought my look would go viral?

0:11:050:11:08

It's clearly moved a lot of people.

0:11:080:11:10

Something else that moves is this picture.

0:11:100:11:13

That's because it's animated.

0:11:130:11:15

Oh, you all right, mate?

0:11:190:11:20

-What's that you've got there?

-This is Gary's diary.

0:11:200:11:22

Look, I'll show you.

0:11:220:11:24

He ran around a tree.

0:11:240:11:25

He ran over the field.

0:11:250:11:27

He did a cartwheel over a stream.

0:11:270:11:29

He jumped on a trampoline.

0:11:290:11:31

Then he was abducted by aliens!

0:11:310:11:34

Don't worry, mate, it's just an animation.

0:11:340:11:37

So, to make this animation,

0:11:370:11:38

you'll need some paper and some scraps of paper, a dark pen,

0:11:380:11:42

some masking tape, a camera, and if you like, a Gary.

0:11:420:11:46

You can put it together in just three ninja moves.

0:11:460:11:49

Ninja move number one.

0:11:490:11:51

You need to draw out a nice big scene.

0:11:510:11:53

This can be anything you like.

0:11:530:11:55

Ninja move number two.

0:11:550:11:56

Now to draw your character inside your scene.

0:11:560:11:58

Once you've drawn it, grab a piece of paper and hide your character and

0:11:580:12:02

tape a little bit of masking tape along one end so you have a bit of

0:12:020:12:05

flapping paper. Now, draw your next frame of animation on this flap.

0:12:050:12:09

Once you've finished it, flap it over and draw the scenery behind the

0:12:090:12:14

flap over the top so it's hidden.

0:12:140:12:16

Now you have to do this for every single frame of the animation.

0:12:160:12:19

Your animated character can do

0:12:190:12:20

anything you like, literally anything.

0:12:200:12:22

Ninja move number three.

0:12:230:12:25

Now I've drawn the frames and all of my flaps and to keep things

0:12:250:12:28

interesting, I've made them flap over in different directions.

0:12:280:12:31

Now it's time to shoot your animation.

0:12:310:12:33

This bit can be a little bit tricky.

0:12:330:12:34

You might need to get a friend to help you but take your time here.

0:12:340:12:37

What you really want here is a nice smooth video.

0:12:370:12:39

OK, so we've shot all our fold outs flipping over,

0:12:390:12:41

we've speeded it up a little bit.

0:12:410:12:43

I think it's time to take a look at our mini masterpiece.

0:12:430:12:45

DOG BARKS

0:12:490:12:51

Oh, yeah, what did you think of that?

0:12:540:12:56

It's really good.

0:12:560:12:57

-Oh, hi, Dad.

-Well, do you notice anything different?

0:13:010:13:04

-Have you clipped your nose hair?

-No, it's my clothes.

0:13:040:13:07

I'm wearing the Paint Pot.

0:13:070:13:09

Oh, that's what it is.

0:13:090:13:12

Yeah, yeah, it's a good attempt.

0:13:120:13:14

PHONE RINGS

0:13:140:13:16

Hi, Ricky, it's your mum.

0:13:160:13:18

Have you seen your dad?

0:13:180:13:20

He's made a right mess in the house.

0:13:200:13:22

-Oh, dear.

-I saw your picture in the news.

0:13:220:13:24

You're quite a style icon.

0:13:240:13:26

And there's plenty more art to come in that fashion.

0:13:260:13:29

The Grand Master embraces style with a woven bracelet.

0:13:290:13:33

You need sheer skill to recycle tights to make greetings cards and

0:13:330:13:37

you turn trash to style treasure for a cover shoot like no other.

0:13:370:13:41

Anyway, got to go.

0:13:410:13:42

Wait till I see your dad, he's in trouble.

0:13:420:13:45

-Bye.

-Oh, dear.

0:13:450:13:47

See him? You can't miss him!

0:13:470:13:49

I wonder if the ninja apprentices are wearing the Paint Pot.

0:13:500:13:54

-BOTH:

-Hi, Ricky.

0:13:540:13:55

Maybe it hasn't caught on yet.

0:13:550:13:57

Hey, it's Lauren and David from Got What It Takes.

0:13:570:13:59

Ricky, have you got what it takes to make art with a microphone?

0:13:590:14:03

No, but I can sing a note that will break this glass.

0:14:030:14:06

HE SINGS NOTE OUT OF TUNE

0:14:060:14:08

-Oh, it's plastic.

-Maybe you should stick to art!

0:14:110:14:13

Oh, it's a bad line.

0:14:130:14:15

Ricky, what can you make with a remote control?

0:14:160:14:19

Sorry, I can't channel any ideas right now.

0:14:190:14:22

Hey, what have these guys got?

0:14:220:14:24

Ricky, can you make art with a pair of old tights?

0:14:240:14:27

It's a bit of a stretch but why not? I choose you.

0:14:270:14:30

Yay!

0:14:300:14:32

-So, what are your names?

-Devon.

0:14:320:14:34

-Vanessa.

-Nice to meet you, guys.

0:14:340:14:36

-And where are you from?

-We're from Kent.

0:14:360:14:39

Well, it's a great suggestion. Let me just go and grab some bits.

0:14:390:14:43

I've got the tights, I've got some glue,

0:14:430:14:46

a couple of paints and some bits of paper.

0:14:460:14:48

We'll get onto that in a moment.

0:14:480:14:50

Some card and a stapler.

0:14:500:14:52

I'm going to start by stapling these pieces of cardboard together

0:14:520:14:55

to make a frame.

0:14:550:14:56

I see a lot of art behind you guys.

0:15:000:15:02

What's that long green one at the top?

0:15:020:15:03

It's a football pitch I made.

0:15:030:15:05

Oh, nice, good stuff.

0:15:050:15:07

I'm just going to cut the foot off one leg of the tights.

0:15:070:15:11

I'm going to cut down it to make a flat piece of material.

0:15:110:15:14

I'm going to be using the tights to make a screen print.

0:15:140:15:17

So now I've got the material like that,

0:15:170:15:18

I'm going to stretch it out and staple it around my frame.

0:15:180:15:21

Let me stretch it round.

0:15:210:15:23

It's a little bit fiddly so you might need to ask for some help.

0:15:230:15:26

And obviously ask somebody if you can use their old tights!

0:15:270:15:30

I'm making sure that it's stretched nice and tightly over the frame

0:15:320:15:35

otherwise the screen print won't work.

0:15:350:15:38

OK, I've got one frame but for my screen print I'm going to need two,

0:15:380:15:42

so I'm going to ninja another one. Ya!

0:15:420:15:44

-Wow!

-And people say I have no style.

0:15:440:15:47

I've got a picture of an ice cream here that I printed out and I'm

0:15:490:15:52

going to use that to create my screen print.

0:15:520:15:54

I'm going to trace around the cone

0:15:540:15:56

and the chocolate stick onto the tights.

0:15:560:15:58

What's your favourite ice cream?

0:15:580:16:00

Mint choc chip.

0:16:000:16:02

Mint choc chip? That's a good flavour, and a lovely colour.

0:16:020:16:05

-Chocolate ice cream.

-Mmm! Classic.

0:16:050:16:08

On this first frame,

0:16:110:16:12

I've drawn around the cone and the chocolate stick.

0:16:120:16:15

Now I'm going to move on and do the ice cream on this second frame.

0:16:150:16:18

The reason I'm using two frames is because I use different colours for

0:16:190:16:23

different parts of the picture.

0:16:230:16:25

OK. Right, now I've got myself some PVA,

0:16:250:16:30

I'm going to paint around the outside of the shapes I've drawn.

0:16:300:16:33

I've got a tray to protect the table.

0:16:350:16:37

Cos it gets quite sticky.

0:16:370:16:39

I'm using the glue to block the holes in the tights -

0:16:390:16:43

so make sure the glue is nice and thick.

0:16:430:16:45

I'm going to paint all the way up to the edges.

0:16:450:16:47

I'm doing the same with the other one,

0:16:490:16:51

painting glue around the shapes that I've drawn.

0:16:510:16:53

There we go. If I can screen print, I need these to dry,

0:16:560:16:59

so I'm going to use my ninja skills.

0:16:590:17:01

Ya!

0:17:010:17:03

-Nice and dry.

-Wow!

0:17:030:17:06

And where there's no glue is where

0:17:060:17:07

the paint will go through the tights to print the picture.

0:17:070:17:10

So I've got a piece of folded card here.

0:17:100:17:12

I'll put my cone and chocolate stick over the top.

0:17:120:17:15

I'm going to add some yellow to the top.

0:17:150:17:17

Using a piece of card as a squeegee, I'll spread it down.

0:17:170:17:20

Make sure you hold still and keep the pressure on

0:17:210:17:24

so the paint goes through the tights.

0:17:240:17:25

Carefully peel that away.

0:17:290:17:31

Oh, yes!

0:17:320:17:33

Now I'm going to add on the ice cream.

0:17:330:17:36

Carefully lining it up with the cone.

0:17:360:17:38

It's best to do this when it's dry.

0:17:380:17:41

So it's strawberry ice cream, I guess.

0:17:410:17:43

I'm pushing the paint through the tights again.

0:17:440:17:48

Fingers crossed.

0:17:480:17:49

Yes! Do you want to see it?

0:17:500:17:52

-Yeah.

-I've made an ice cream greetings card.

0:17:520:17:56

Wow.

0:17:560:17:58

And the great thing about using a screen print is you can make

0:17:580:18:00

loads of copies.

0:18:000:18:02

So, what would you score it?

0:18:040:18:05

We give it a ten.

0:18:050:18:08

It was a great suggestion.

0:18:080:18:10

-Bye, guys.

-Bye, Ricky.

0:18:100:18:12

Wow. I'm so fashionable, it hurts.

0:18:200:18:24

Hey, Gav, are you here to get restyled as the Paint Pot as well?

0:18:240:18:28

The Paint Pot look is already so last week.

0:18:280:18:31

So last week?

0:18:310:18:32

It only started this morning.

0:18:320:18:34

Wow, fashion moves fast.

0:18:340:18:37

So, if that's out, what's in?

0:18:370:18:39

We can work on that but first, let's get our catwalk on.

0:18:390:18:43

CAMERA SHUTTERS CLICK

0:18:430:18:48

CHEERING

0:18:590:19:02

Gav, the catwalk loves us!

0:19:020:19:05

Now you just need to find a new look.

0:19:050:19:07

Here's a quick art tip of how to draw a washing line.

0:19:090:19:12

To start, draw the poles and they're going to need anchors in the ground

0:19:120:19:16

and that's where they're going to come from.

0:19:160:19:18

These poles are very, very thin long rectangles.

0:19:180:19:21

I'm going to draw them leaning away from each other.

0:19:210:19:24

A little tie on either of them.

0:19:240:19:25

That's where the washing line is going to hang.

0:19:250:19:27

I'm going to have it sagging in the middle like this

0:19:270:19:29

because, of course, it's holding heavy, wet clothes.

0:19:290:19:32

A couple of pegs. A couple here, too.

0:19:320:19:35

Now I get to draw the clothes. I'm going to start with a T-shirt.

0:19:350:19:38

With two sleeves either side, it's kind of like a fat-bodied T.

0:19:380:19:41

And the collar and details there for the sleeves.

0:19:410:19:44

A pair of trousers. Two legs.

0:19:440:19:46

Draw the pocket details in. Tops.

0:19:460:19:48

Of course, the flies. How about some trendy turn ups?

0:19:480:19:52

There we go. A pair of Y-fronts.

0:19:520:19:54

That kind of shape.

0:19:540:19:56

It's really the detail that defines each of these garments.

0:19:560:20:00

Now a couple of socks.

0:20:000:20:02

There we go. There's a quick art tip on how to draw a washing line.

0:20:040:20:09

-Uh, Gav?

-New look sorted.

0:20:210:20:25

It's awful.

0:20:250:20:27

I don't think you'll find anybody but you wearing that.

0:20:270:20:30

Oh, really?

0:20:300:20:32

-Om...

-It's the Grand Master!

-Om...

0:20:350:20:37

Whoa!

0:20:390:20:41

I'm OK, man.

0:20:410:20:42

Greetings, dudes.

0:20:420:20:44

You're looking very...

0:20:440:20:45

-..now.

-You noticed!

0:20:470:20:49

That's the number 2018 to enlightenment.

0:20:500:20:55

Organic adornment for your carpus.

0:20:550:21:00

A woven bracelet for your wrist.

0:21:000:21:03

Let's do this!

0:21:030:21:05

Grab three straws, dude, and wrap sticky tape around one end.

0:21:050:21:10

Get some wool.

0:21:100:21:12

Tie a knot around one of the straws

0:21:120:21:14

and start weaving the wool between them.

0:21:140:21:17

Keep weaving back and forth, dudes.

0:21:200:21:22

When you fancy a change, cut off the wool and add another colour.

0:21:220:21:28

Just tie it to the last one, dudes.

0:21:280:21:31

Carry on weaving.

0:21:310:21:33

Do as many colours as you like, man.

0:21:330:21:36

Cut off the wool, then grab a skewer and three lengths of wool.

0:21:380:21:42

Poke a piece through each straw with the skewer.

0:21:430:21:46

Tie off this end.

0:21:510:21:53

Carefully slide the wool off the straws.

0:21:570:22:00

Tie off this end. And tie the ends together!

0:22:040:22:09

Yeah, vogue, dudes.

0:22:160:22:18

That's a number 2018 complete.

0:22:190:22:24

Check it out!

0:22:240:22:25

Thanks, Grand Master.

0:22:260:22:28

I am most enlightened.

0:22:280:22:30

Om... Om!

0:22:300:22:32

I can't believe the Grand Master has his finger on the fashion pulse.

0:22:340:22:38

Me, too. Remember, I am Bristol's Best Dressed Personality after all.

0:22:380:22:42

Bye then. How am I going to get my fashion mojo back?

0:22:440:22:47

I guess I don't need this any more.

0:22:470:22:50

PHONE RINGS

0:22:530:22:55

-Hey, Sarah.

-Hey, Ricky. Great pout.

0:22:550:22:58

-What's up?

-My Paint Pot look went viral and now Gav says it's over.

0:22:580:23:03

That's a bit dramatic. Meet me at the photography studio,

0:23:030:23:06

-I think I might be able to help you out.

-I'll see you there!

0:23:060:23:08

Better not forget this little accessory.

0:23:080:23:11

Ninja skills!

0:23:160:23:17

-Hey, Sarah.

-Hi, Ricky.

0:23:180:23:20

I see you've ditched the Paint Pot look?

0:23:200:23:22

Yeah, I thought I'd go with this fashion classic.

0:23:220:23:24

Maybe it's in fashion at the skate park but not on the catwalk.

0:23:240:23:27

This is Adnan, he's going to help you get your fashion mojo back.

0:23:270:23:30

Well, in that case, lovely to meet you.

0:23:300:23:32

Adnan is a top fashion designer.

0:23:320:23:34

He uses unusual materials to make couture clothes.

0:23:340:23:36

Well, Adnan, you're the guy to get me back on the fashion map

0:23:360:23:40

but first, we're going to get our ninja on.

0:23:400:23:42

Art Ninja!

0:23:500:23:52

Strike a pose. And a pose.

0:23:520:23:55

And a pose.

0:23:550:23:56

So, if I wanted to start my own fashion label,

0:23:590:24:02

the House of Art Ninja, what materials would I need to buy?

0:24:020:24:05

None. I like to make clothes out of recycled materials.

0:24:050:24:08

I've made a paperclip dress over there...

0:24:080:24:11

..a plastic bag dress.

0:24:120:24:14

-Beautiful.

-Thanks.

0:24:140:24:15

Would you mind getting some of that recycling from over there

0:24:160:24:19

-for me, please?

-Sure.

0:24:190:24:20

This is tricky.

0:24:240:24:26

We need to open these boxes.

0:24:260:24:28

-Can you cut some long strips for me, please?

-Sure.

0:24:280:24:31

-Sarah, I need eight of these.

-OK.

-Thanks.

0:24:370:24:40

So, what are we going to do with these?

0:24:480:24:49

Well, we're going to build a cage around this mannequin.

0:24:490:24:52

So grab a strip, get a pin,

0:24:520:24:54

and just pin it in like that.

0:24:540:24:56

It doesn't look much like a piece of clothing.

0:25:050:25:07

You haven't seen anything yet.

0:25:070:25:08

It's looking good. So, what's next?

0:25:230:25:25

We're going to make a ninja spinner.

0:25:250:25:26

There you go. I'm going to need a load of these, Ricky.

0:25:300:25:33

All right, I'll just ninja some more.

0:25:330:25:35

Wow, that's great!

0:25:360:25:38

You get some colour on this and I'm going to help Sarah.

0:25:380:25:40

-Looking good.

-Let's get some colour on it.

0:25:570:26:00

Great! Here's a finishing touch.

0:26:110:26:13

Let's get you in the outfit.

0:26:130:26:15

While Ricky's getting changed, let's get this camera warmed up.

0:26:150:26:18

Lovely.

0:26:210:26:22

Fabulous. Fabulous.

0:26:220:26:24

Love this one from recycled fabrics.

0:26:240:26:27

Perfect.

0:26:270:26:28

And a recycled paperclip dress.

0:26:280:26:31

Nice! That's it, work it.

0:26:310:26:33

Tiger.

0:26:330:26:35

Wonderful. Nice one.

0:26:350:26:37

Come on, Ricky, it's your turn. I can't wait to see it.

0:26:370:26:40

I am fashion!

0:26:420:26:45

Wow. Amazing!

0:26:520:26:54

Come on, then, give us your best poses.

0:26:540:26:56

The fashionistas are going to love this.

0:26:560:26:58

Give me fox.

0:27:010:27:02

Show me squirrel.

0:27:040:27:05

Give it some ninja.

0:27:070:27:08

-Looking good!

-Thanks, Adnan.

0:27:100:27:13

Finally, I've got my style mojo back.

0:27:130:27:16

It's time to strut this stuff on the catwalk of life.

0:27:160:27:19

CRASH!

0:27:190:27:21

Real cool, Ricks, real cool.

0:27:210:27:22

The fashion industry moves so fast, it's hard to keep up.

0:27:300:27:34

I never want to be a fashionista again.

0:27:340:27:36

-Nice pyjamas. Check out that bedtime look!

-This is so now!

0:27:410:27:45

-Amazing.

-Argh!

0:27:450:27:49

Head over to our online gallery and

0:27:510:27:53

upload your masterpieces at...

0:27:530:27:55

Art Ninja goes Trend Ninja when Gav wins Bristol's Best Dressed competition and somehow Ricky becomes a viral fashion sensation. He makes a gumball sock dispenser, punk patches inspired by Vivienne Westwood and a card using a pair of tights. But when he loses his fashion mojo, Ricky and the gang try to get it back with a recycled catwalk fashion show.
