As one of the common items we use in our daily lives, cordage (string, twine, and rope) also plays a significant role in wilderness self-reliance. Early people used bark, roots, and plants to create rope and other implements that enabled them to make shelter, hunt, trap, and snare animals for food and clothing. As a matter of bush craft and outdoor survival, it’s no wonder cordage-making is one of the top 10 skills to master! At this event you will explore making cordage under the guidance of skilled craftsman.
