Rope Making class
Rope making has been an important skill for thousands of years and the techniques have not changed much. 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. Not only is it an important skill to have but it is easy to do using simple equipment you can make.
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.
Instructor Joe Rafacz has been teaching this class for many years and love to share his skills.
