Overview

Learn the twists and turns of ropemaking this fall in our DIY Ropemaking Workshop! In this workshop, participants will explore the physics, mechanics, and history of ropemaking . Each participant will use wood to build a simple tool to twist cord, yarn, and recycled fabric into rope. You’ll get to take home your rope creation and your tool to continue your ropemaking at home! (And, for all those dog lovers out there, we can even show you how to turn your homemade rope into a sturdy dog toy. ) Cost is $20 per person. There is no member discount for our workshop programs. All supplies and museum admission are included. The workshop is designed for ages 10 and up. Anyone under 16 must participate with an adult, who must also register. Advance registration and payment required.
