It’s the Year of the Lobster here at White Point and to compliment the Lobster Ravioli Chef Alan has introduced on our Dinner Menu this month, we’re inviting you to come get your hands on some rope used in the Lobster Fishery here in area 34 and make a “Turks Head Knot” Wreath with Artist of White Point, Daphne of Knotty Girl Rope in West Dublin, just up the shore from us!
The Turks Head Knot was used in the past by fisherman around poles, oars and masts. The knot we will be making will be flattened out which will give it a completely different look.
Paired with our workshop will be a glass of Nova Scotia libation – Nova Scotia’s Tidal Bay of course carefully selected to complement our wreath AND lobster-infused munchies, of course!
Daphne has been working with re-purposed rope for the past six years. As the fisherman switch out their gear, she will trade them a basket or mat for a load of the used rope, keeping it out of the landfill, and using it to make original pieces for both decorative and practical uses.
