Description
Ever wonder how to make those beautiful spliced loops on the ends of your tent ropes? Well, this class is for you. We will teach you the "eye splice" and the "back splice" to avoid those unsightly knots on your loops, and those annoying "cows tails" on the ends. If we have time we will try the "crown knot"......an ornamental stopper knot to replace those ugly "figure eight knots". All materials and tools will be provided......just bring yourselves. Suggested reading: "Ashley Book of Knots". Perhaps the definitive work on the subject.
