Netting is a knotted form of looping. Clay fragments found in Upper Paleolithic sites show impressions of knots like you'll learn in this class. You'll start from a grommet base and work in the round with a collecting knot at the end of each row. The class project is a small mesh pouch sized to hold a water bottle or thermos, a skein of yarn (for the mobile knitter), or a fiber offering for the birds who nest in your yard. The same techniques can be used to make string shopping bags or dip nets like the Mayoruna fishing net in the Museum's collection. Reservations are required.
