String & Rope-making with kouka/cabbage tree leaves with Diana Hinterleitner
Diana shares the skills learned at a Rekindle string making workshop and is happy to provide the opportunity for you to learn this useful art and easily acquired skill.
This workshop will give you a resourceful skill that you’ll be able to use in so many ways for the rest of your life! This technique for making string and rope is simple and can be used with many different materials. You will learn howto use tī kōuka / cabbage tree leaves which are abundantly available.
If you have access to tī kōuka / cabbage tree leaves, do bring in as big a bundle as you can! (Please soak for at least 24 hours prior to use).
Afterwards, you’ll never look at tī kōuka leaves the same way again!
Some things to know:
• Expect to get covered in tī kōuka
• Please bring work gloves if you have some, and bring scissors if you can
• If you have access to tī kōuka / cabbage tree leaves, do bring in as big a bundle as you can! (please soak for at least 24 hours prior to use)
It will be a really fun session and I can’t wait to share this lovely hugely practical craft with you.
