Get the Hang of it! Make Your Own Hammock

Course Overview

Hang out at North House for three days and craft your very own hammock-- a great way to enjoy the outdoors. They're “knot” too heavy, easy to pack and perfect for your backyard, a campground, or backpacking on the trail. If you've ever enjoyed an afternoon lounge in a hammock or a night's sleep suspended between the trees, this class is for you. You will make a high quality, ultra-durable, lightweight hammock that you can hang anywhere, and your own tools to create projects at home. For years to come, using your hammock will remind you of net making's craftsmanship and history. Net making is an ancient skill that remains unchanged since the ancient Egyptians and Scandinavian fishermen, but translates directly to this handy modern project. Learning one knot and multiple techniques, this class is appropriate for all experience levels, from beginners to advanced, to learn this historic craft. Note, due to the advance cost of materials, students must pay the $55 materials fee in full at the time of registration. In the event of a cancellation, the materials fee in non-refundable unless the spot is filled.
