Knots are part of life even if it’s just tying your shoes! Ropes, lines, cords, string, twine, are all part of our lives and knots enable us to use them whether it’s to tie up the dog, tying a boat to a dock or climbing a mountain.
In this class, you will learn to tie some of the most basic knots, starting with the granddaddy of them all, the square knot. We’ll then move on to other knots like the sheet bend, the bowline and more. You will be given some rope as soon you arrive and you will start tying knots. Really, you can’t help it. It’s as natural as breathing! And you will learn, help, share or find yourself with ten thumbs. It’s like gathering around a campfire.
Knowing knots is one thing but using them to their best advantage is the best part. Tying things up, tying things down, tying things together, making things safer or just making things with rope is what it’s all about and it’s always a lot of fun!
