In this one shot course students will learn the basics of core creation, which is the "spine" of a paracord project like keychains and bracelets, allowing for more advanced techniques.

Class experience

Students will learn the key step to go from beginning paracord knotting to advanced bracelets, cores and knots.  We will cover what a paracord core is, how to make 2,3, and 4 strand cores with 1, 2,3,4 or more working strands.  We will also cover how to start and end bracelets with and without buckles, and how to melt paracord for sealing.
Teacher has been making paracord crafts for 30+ years.
Paracord (available at any craft store or online). I recommend purchasing a small kit which includes buckles and other tools. 
Students will need a 10 ft length of paracord and a buckle or keyring.
I highly recommend a small paracord bundle for beginners like this one from amazon that usually costs $10 or so. https://www.amazon.com/WEREWOLVES-Paracord-Bracelet-Crafting-Instruction/dp/B09BKJLX2P/ref=sr_1_34?crid=3434I0BKDAZES&keywords=paracord&qid=1667027286&qu=eyJxc2MiOiI3LjE3IiwicXNhIjoiNi43NyIsInFzcCI6IjYuNTUifQ%3D%3D&sprefix=paracord%2Caps%2C163&sr=8-34
This doesn't provide military quality paracord, but it is perfect for friendship bracelet making and beginners.  If students remain interested and get more serious, higher quality paracord and survival bracelets can be considered.
You can also purchase a kit that contains a jig, which also comes with paracord and makes things much easier by keeping the bracelet tight and the correct length while you work.  An example can be found here: https://www.amazon.com/dp/B077S3C8TG/ref=sspa_dk_detail_3?psc=1&pd_rd_i=B077S3C8TG&pd_rd_w=Yu1Ub&content-id=amzn1.sym.dd2c6db7-6626-466d-bf04-9570e69a7df0&pf_rd_p=dd2c6db7-6626-466d-bf04-9570e69a7df0&pf_rd_r=5YVCH7P40BY68Y019711&pd_rd_wg=3S8r8&pd_rd_r=fab6f063-10e0-4acb-a563-49f8978dd934&s=home-garden&sp_csd=d2lkZ2V0TmFtZT1zcF9kZXRhaWxfdGhlbWF0aWM&smid=A3QZ39CEBSLY46&spLa=ZW5jcnlwdGVkUXVhbGlmaWVyPUEzOVFDVE5YMjNSRU5VJmVuY3J5cHRlZElkPUEwNjA1NTk1MVdVUkZGWjNRV0xZRyZlbmNyeXB0ZWRBZElkPUEwNjk5NzUzQUswNUc2RVVCTUk2JndpZGdldE5hbWU9c3BfZGV0YWlsX3RoZW1hdGljJmFjdGlvbj1jbGlja1JlZGlyZWN0JmRvTm90TG9nQ2xpY2s9dHJ1ZQ==
Students will need parental guidance to use lighters (butane or torch style preferred) to melt and seal paracord ends.
