Decorative Knots Workshop on Zoom

November 19, 2020 @ 6:00 pm - 8:00 pm

Thursday, November 19
Registration Deadline: November 18 by noon

During down time at sea, 19th-century sailors mastered the art of decorative knots. In this workshop, you will learn the monkey’s fist and a basic Turk’s Head Knot. These make great gifts and also perfect holiday ornaments! Participants can work on the projects throughout the week or wait and join us on Zoom on November 19th. For questions contact Jeana at [email protected]. Register here.
