Cordage Making Workshop

This workshop will look at the collection and preparation of fibers for cordage making obtained from commonly available plant materials (the exact fibers used will depend on the season).

We will then look at making 2 ply "laid" cordage from pre-prepared materials by hand twisting and thigh rolling. We will cover scaling things up to make thicker cordage and ropes by techniques such as using more fibres, increasing the number of plies and doubling up.

In addition the workshop will cover simple plaits and braids.

This workshop will be based indoors

All ages welcome. Under 18's must be accompanied by an adult.
Tea/Coffee available.
