Lobster Rope Weaving

Learn to turn ocean waste into functional art.

All lobster rope has been rescued from local beaches, wharves and fishers. It’s been pickling in the ocean for years so the colours you weave with are the colours you’ll have forever – no fading. Plus, you might get lucky and find a piece that has whale markers in it for an extra cool story to tell about your work of art.
