Natural rope making

Get ready for Plastic Free July 2019!

Avoid synthetic plastic and learn the ancient craft of natural rope (cordage) making.

Making rope (or cordage) from natural fibres is an ancient tradition practiced by human cultures across the world. Nowadays, rope is generally made from plastic fibres which end up polluting our oceans, rivers and wetlands where they are harming wildlife and releasing toxins as they break down over hundreds and thousands of years.

Join Steve from Wild Movement and learn how easy it is to make your own useful rope from natural fibres. Natural ropes can be used as a fishing line, to start a fire (bow drill), to build a shelter, used as a bow string, to create a net and many other purposes.

This activity is suitable for adults and children. Materials will be provided, please bring a pair of scissors.

Meet near the carpark off Eudoria St at Mary Carroll Park in Gosnells.

The cost of the tickets has been subsidised by 50% by Switch your thinking and are now $10 per person.

This project is funded by the Waste Authority through the Waste Avoidance and Resource Recovery Account.
