Monkey’s Fist & Knot Theory

Thu, September 22, 7pm – 8pm
Colonel Sumner Park (SE 17th St and SE Taylor St).

Monkey’s fist or monkey paw is a type of knot, so named because it looks somewhat like a small bunched fist/paw. It is tied at the end of a rope to serve as a weight, making it easier to throw, and also as an ornamental knot. This type of weighted rope can be used as an improvised weapon, called a slungshot by sailors. Learn how to tie this interesting knot! This class will be taught near to and just after the Food Not Bombs serving of free vegan food.
