About the event
String, twine, rope and load-bearing locking loops are all made according to the same fundamental principles. Humans have been following these principles for thousands of years to make cordage using natural, organic plant materials. We can use natural materials to make beautiful, strong, and very functional string - and locking carabiners!
We’ll learn to identify, harvest, store, process and use materials like cattails, common milkweed, dogbane, stinging nettles, white cedar, basswood bark and also birch and alder twigs for cordage, rope and carabiners. We'll make cool little bracelets, necklaces and locking carabiners. $25 includes all required tools, materials, tuition, one fermented beverage from Root Wild, and a tip for the bartender.
