    France IGKT Knotting Weekend @ Forum des Marais
    Mar 30 @ 10:00 – Mar 31 @ 17:00

    IGKT France Knotting Weekend

    IGKT France Knotting Weekend

    IGKT France Knotting Weekend

    The French branch of the the International Guild of Knot Tyers will be hosting a Knotting Weekend. This will take place on 30th and 31st of March 2019 in the “Forum des Marais” in Rochefort – Charente maritime.

    The “Forum des Marais” is located on the first basin of the Rochefort marina close to the Corderie royale

    I always recommend that you try to get to one of these knotting events, as you will be able to see some remarkable knot work. Not only that, you will also be able to touch some of the work, which I consider to be very important. This way you will learn just how much tension has gone into making a decorative knot.
