Leaders: Anton J
Standard: Everyone welcome
Meeting: No meeting


This is a basic introduction to knot tying, not specific to any sport.

We will be going through terminology and some of the foundational knots in a seminar style workshop.  

Knots that will be looked at:

  • No-knot
  • Two Round Twists
  • Clove Hitch
  • Bowline
  • Figure Eight
  • Directional Figure Eight
  • Rolling Hitch
  • European Death Knot

This will equip you to attach ropes to things securely, tighten the ropes beyond just pulling on them, and set up a system which captures your progress as you tighten.

All ropes will be provided. Meeting in the library, unless there's too many.

A good website for looking at knots is here: http://www.animatedknots.com/
