The research methodology done by the expert of design and marketing empowerment through the motivation and alternatives to the craftsmen.

Finally the training program followed by few volunteer. 3. Reasercher made many alternatives of design dealing with the craftsmen, and then we choose one to two products to make the prototype. We discuss the result of the products and they can give their opinion to the products, whether they don’t agree with. 4. The prototype process product at two location. The product made of the root of the bamboo, black apus bamboo produce at Mr Yana’s and Mr Daryono’s studio, and the product made of betung bamboo produce at Pendidikan Seni Rupa FKIP UNS laboratory.

The development of the product show diversity to the craftsmen original products. The excellence of the product development was on the simplicity of the product, so the production process didn’t take too much time, and low raw material consuming. 7. The HKI process done by the HKI unit of LPPM Sebelas Maret University. The initial process of HKI prosedure was consulting with the expert of HKI unit, and then understanding the mechanism and requirement prosedure, and finally registered. 8.
