On small farms and in maritime activities, people depend on ropes for efficient handling and securing of cargo, sails, or livestock. This important skill has application for modern craft, home, and farm use. Learn the basics of laying up and making rope, as well as selection of appropriate materials. Students will make a simple hand-held rope maker to take home. In addition, we will teach several knots and splices.
