Explore one of the most useful features of plants: cordage. This ancient skill was used to make durable rope long before paracord. During this hands-on program, you will learn how to find, identify, and process plants that can be used for making cordage. We will demonstrate how humans have used - and still use - cordage to make fire, jewelry, clothes, and even traps. Bring a pendant to hang from your new cordage necklace!
