$15 Fees are non-refundable
9 A.M. to 12 P.M.
This introductory class will take the student through the steps to making cordage: identifying the materials in the woods; harvesting and preparation and creation of rope using the reverse wrap method.
As one of the common items we use in our daily lives, cordage (string, twine and rope) plays a significant roll in wilderness self-reliance. Early people used natural materials for this purpose to create the tools and other implements that enabled them to hunt, trap and snare animals for food and clothing. As a matter of survival, it's no wonder why the ability of cordage-making is one of the top-10 skills to master!
