AEFES will be having the fascinating ancient craft of Stonk Knots with formerly home educators Patri and Jim. "The use of knots and ropes is among the oldest documented skills practised by humans. Often overlooked, it forms the basis for countless related crafts (weaving, macramé etc.), and extends to many fields of work; besides fishing and boating, knot use and theory crosses over to engineering, mathematics, climbing, surgery, archaeology and many others.
Even in this age of readily available tape, clips, velcro and cable ties, rope remains the most versatile and simplest of materials - and the key to using it effectively lies in the skill of knotting."
