In this hands-on class you will learn how to create cordage from the inner bark of the basswood tree and fibers from flax plants. Cordage is rope, string, or twine made by twisting plant fibers together. Simple as it sounds, over generations different cultures have discovered how to harvest plants and process them through many steps to create rope to tie their worlds together. In this class, participants will learn about the history and science of cordage and get to experiment with several plant fibers to make enough cordage for a bracelet or necklace to take home.
