Have you ever wanted to make your own rope? Or have you ever just wanted to know what goes into rope? Join Hardknight for a class on how to make your own rope. We'll be providing not just a demonstration, but some resources for you to truly do it yourself. If you want to bring your own supplies, see the notes below

Simultaneously, we'll also be holding a small class inside on rope maintenance. We'll cover how to fold, oil, and generally keep your rope in the best possible condition.

You only need one type of fiber. You can always bring any of the different types listed.
