There will be no homework for this class.
Student will need a length of rope. I suggest a 12 to 15 foot piece of rope if you plan to have your student take any of my other knots classes. 6 feet of rope would work just fine for this class. The rope should be nylon, between 8mm and 11mm for ease of tying and untying. (550 cord or para cord is a popular and cheap option and is suitable, but a little thin to be working with) The student will also need something to tie the rope off to. A dowel, broom handle, back of a chair, or even a door handle. Something that can be in front of the camera so I can assess their work.
I will watch each student confidently and properly tie a bowline knot, and if we have time, I will have a fun timed knot tying challenge for the students.
25 minutes per week in class, and maybe some time outside of class.
