Sur-thri-val Series – Cordage & Knots

We are living in interesting and uncertain times. Preparedness for economic downturns, storms and other types of emergencies is critical for all families. At times such as these, we need to think like Maroons. This series of AfriClasses™ focusses on helping us prepare ourselves and our families for any eventuality. The classes will culminate in an outdoor, wilderness summer program where we can practice what we have learned and learn new skills in person.

Note: For some classes materials will be sent via mail. For others, parents must provide the materials see each class for details. This is a live in person class that consists of 10 weekly 1.5 hour sessions. Best for Ages 8 to 14.

Surthrival – Cordage & Knots

Fridays : 2:00pm – 3:30pm EST – Jan 28 – Apr 1, 2022 (10 weeks)

Ropes and knots are among the most ancient and useful technologies ever developed by man. Long before the iron nails and glues we use today, our ancestors used ropes and knots. In fact, they were the basis of all weaving – baskets, cloth etc. While the knowledge of using ropes has practically become obsolete today, when it comes to survival, knowledge of knots could mean the difference between surviving and SUR-THRIVING! Who better to teach this than Baba Amenseph? To learn more about Baba Amenseph and BlktoNtr click here.
