Paleo-Tech: Making Cordage from Plants - 10:00 am – 3:00 pm
Native Americans were experts in surviving out in the wilderness. The Paleo-Tech series of programs is designed to bring prehistoric knowledge and technologies back to life in case you are ever faced with a modern day survival situation. This year we kick off our season by showing people how to make cordage and rope from plant fibers. Cordage has been one of the most useful tools throughout history. Yet few people, even though it is used all the time, know how to make it. Even fewer people know how to make it out in the wild during a survival situation. This class will take you step by step through the process of collecting the proper material, how to process it, and finally how to actually make it into usable cordage and rope. Registration Required. Cost: $20.00 per person
