Summer Workshop: Rope Making

A focus  of the BRIDGE Pavilion Summer Workshop was to consider both textile and timber materials and processes in terms of applications and construction. With the help of students from 3D, Textiles and Interior Architecture Toni Hicks (Senior Lecturer Textiles) demonstrated a traditional rope making technique to Glenn Longden-Thurgood (Senior Lecturer Interior Architecture), made easier by the use of electric drills from the wood workshop, and within half an hour created ropes strong enough to be used in the construction.
