Come along this Labour Weekend and learn how to make string and rope with Hannah Wilson-Black. This workshop is located at the O Block Hub, on the corner of ANZAC Ave and Minerva St in Ōtepoti Dunedin. More detailed information about location and parking will be provided prior to the workshop.
In Rekindle’s most popular workshop, learn how to use local plant materials to make a strong and beautiful twine. This technique for making string and rope, which originated in the UK/Europe, is simple and can be used with many different materials.
We will be using tī kōuka/cabbage tree leaves in this workshop as these are such an abundant and multi-purpose material that we can find all around us. If you have access to fallen/brown tī kōuka leaves, please bring in as big a bundle as you can! Please soak them first in water overnight if possible, if not longer.
