Limina series: Nettle Cordage with Larkin Forestheart, September 12, 2020

Join Larkin for a fun class where you can learn how to make cordage (natural rope!) from nettle stalks.

This class is BYON – bring your own nettle stalks. You’ll receive an email four weeks in advance of class with instructions on how you can go about finding and harvesting your own materials to work with in this live virtual class. We’ll talk about what cordage can be used for and other materials we can use to make it as well.


Date & time: Saturday, September 12, 1-2pm PDT

This video will be recorded for download for all participants, including those who can’t make it live.

See below for information on the sliding scale and video format.



This live video offering is part of the Limina Virtual Workshop series, an online connection of ancestral skills. Born from Crowsnest Wildcraft’s annual Limina Gathering, which was postponed from 2020 to 2021 to respond to COVID-19, we are taking our offerings online over the course of several months. Individuals may register for one or as many workshops as you like. Proceeds go directly to the facilitator and to Limina Gathering.

To register: purchase your spot on a sliding scale by choosing your price. That’s it!

You will receive first a confirmation email and later a follow-up email from the facilitator prior to the workshop.

Any questions can be directed to

Interpreting a sliding scale:
$10-15: If you are able to pay for “wants” and spend little time worried about securing necessities in your life, this price is for you.
$5-10: If you are struggling to conquer debt or build savings or move away from paycheck to paycheck living but have access to steady income and are not spending most of your time thinking about meeting basic needs such as food, shelter, medical care, child care, etc., you belong here.
$0-5: If you struggle to maintain access to needs such as health care, housing, food, child care, and are living paycheck to paycheck or are in significant debt, you belong here and you deserve a community that honours your price as equal an economic offering as the person who can pay the highest tier.
