Why Knot? Surviving Without Duct Tape at North House | 7-9pm Thursday, November 12th | Free

The colors are changing, the days are getting shorter…why not take advantage of the start of the slower season and experience craft at North House. Join one of our skilled interns every Thursday evening starting October 22th for a variety of different craft opportunities. No registration required, just drop in to learn something new. Free. 7-9pm.


Loops, bends, hitches, stoppers... there are a variety of knots, but only a few are essential for everyday applications. We will cover a little theory and practice some basic knots before putting our skills (and knots) to the test. Leave the duct tape at home and learn a few knots, so you won't need to tie a lot.
