Join Andrew at the Nature Center Outdoor Pavilion to create your own cordage/rope into a bracelet.

There are many materials within McCormick's Creek that people historically used to make rope or cordage. Cordage is extremely versatile and can be used as clothes, jewelry, tools for slings and snares, and even for making fire. The limits lie only in one's imagination. Learn the basics of making rope and then learn to process and use native plants. (Bring a pendant if you would like to make jewelry)

Topics will include:

  • Plants of McCormick's Creek to use and how to process them for fibers
  • Storage and Care of your rope
  • Knots
