General Meeting - Traditional Rope Making and how an Antarctic scientist ended up hooked on knots
Dr. Barbara Frankel will be demonstrating the lost art of traditional rope making with a magnificent wooden rope making machine that was commissioned for the Australian Wooden Boat Festival in 2019. This machine will be on display again during the WBF in 2023. Barbara was inspired to learn nautical knotwork while aboard the icebreaker RSV Aurora Australis and will explain why she was there, and how she fell in love with rope making and knotwork.
