Noon Knot Club at PMM

July 7, 2020 @ 12:00 pm - 1:00 pm

Tuesday, July 7
Noon to 1pm
One-time fee of $5/person, FREE for members

Bring a brown bag lunch, picnic blanket or lawn chair, and your knot project and join us for some crafting and conversation. We will provide participants with a packet including string and instructions for several knot projects. This is a casual crafting hour – our staff and volunteers will offer guidance but generally the knotting is self-led. Recommended supplies to bring include small needle-nosed pliers, sharp scissors, a butane lighter, and additional string or rope if desired. Recommended books are Des Pawson’s Knot Craft, Stuart Grainger’s Creative Ropecraft, and The Marlinspike Sailor by Hervey Garrett Smith. Canceled on rainy days. Join the group on the grass near the Camera Obscura (see map)
