As a kid, I can remember taking old fibers laying around the house and twisting them into intricate designs, creating beautiful pieces of art. I wasn’t really sure what I was creating or why, but the fiber inspired me to continue.
I’d typically use my crafted twists as shoe laces or friendship bracelets to share with kids around the neighborhood, unaware I was creating something our ancestors had made for thousands of years.
Creating a needed item out of the resources at hand fosters self-reliance, confidence and creativity. We hope you and your young fiber artists enjoy learning to make and use cordage natural cordage!
