Rope-maker’s workplace

In bygone days, rope-making yards produced cables for shipyards, sail-making companies, fishing boats and livestock holders.

At the rope-making yard in the Museum, various strands are twisted together to make all kinds of rope, such as washing lines, hawsers, and skipping ropes. You can also make a rope yourself.

Turn the wheel and help the rope-maker create a (skipping) rope. In the meantime, the rope-maker explains the details of the craft and the working of the rope walk.
