People have been making nets across the globe for thousands of years, and besides catching fish, nets are perfect for carrying groceries, storing toys, and hanging fruit and gadgets in the kitchen. Your imagination is the limit! Even better, you only need to learn to tie one knot to make a fish net. In this class you will make a netted sack for carrying groceries. You will go home with your carrying sack, your own net-making tools, and the knowledge you need to make more netted projects on your own. Materials fee of $10, payable to the instructor.**See supply list of items to bring to class**
