About The Event
A workshop to learn how to make cordage from weeds. Explore nettle, bramble and more as a medium for creating twine. Come sit in the shady canopy, by the water or our fire and make together. Busy the hands and quiet the mind. Thois workshop has been inspired by the amount of synthetic rope removed from the river and will explore simple techniques to make rope from nothing but the plants around us.
Accessibility to the creek is limited to the coastal footpath and is a 15 minute walk from Flushing or 40 minutes from Penryn.
