Knots and Tarpology

  • First Congregation Church *(corner of park and michigan in the back lounge) Kalamazoo, MI (map)

 Join us to learn how to rig a tarp for a variety of reasons- everything from sleeping out over night to hosting a group of people outdoors! An alternative to expensive canopies that break when you fold them up! We will begin by learning a few basic knots and then moving out into the park to tie up some tarps. 

If you would like to get a head start on the knots: Clove Hitch, Taught Line Hitch, and Bowline Hitch

These knots are also useful in many other situations such as securing things to roof racks, bike racks, etc...
