NET MAKING COURSES

NET MAKING WORKSHOP

This is a 1 day course aimed at teaching you how to create a net. The day will begin with you constructing a needle and gauge that will be yours to keep.

We will then look at options of cordage available in nature and spend approximately an hour learning cordage techniques. However this will not produce the quantity required for you to get through the day so you will proceed with a commercial twine for your net. 

Following this you will be shown how to load your needle and set out the basic principles to proceed into net making.
