Nettle Bracelet Making

Simon Birbeck

Ever wondered how our ancestors managed without string, and rope and twine? Did you know nettles could be used, yes - with nettle cordage they could make bows, clothes, traps, fishing line and bind shelters. Even now when on your outdoor adventures in the wild cordage can be helpful to tie things together: boots, clothes and even rucksacks. In our session, you'll get to equip yourself with an essential survival skill by learning how to make cordage out of nettles - whilst making a bracelet for your wrist.
