Sailor Skills – Ropework
Join one of our experienced staff members to try your hand at some traditional ropework. First, you will tour the grounds, including the Plymouth Cordage Company ropewalk, to learn about 19th-century ropemaking techniques, then you will use a replica ropejack to make your own natural-fiber rope. Finally, settle in to our historic Sail Loft to learn whipping and splicing, using 19th-century tools and techniques. All supplies are included.
This class is for ages 16 and older.
