Spinning & Rope-Making July 23

Just a little reminder that tomorrow's theme in the garden is 'Spinning & Rope-Making' -- come on out for show-and-tell if you're already into this, and come on out if you're not into it yet, to try your hand at a 'rake-straw spinner', drop spindle, or a mini rope machine.
Here's my "Ropes and Braids" Pinterest Board for inspiration, and below you'll find a favourite historical video clip of a couple of cowboys using a 'rake-straw spinner' to make horsehair rope.
Hope to see you soon -- Wednesday July 23, 7-9pm in the Flax Field behind Aberthau Mansion, just off Trimble and North West Marine by Locarno Beach.
