What Knot Crafts - knotting and rope craft
Welcome to my website, where I will show you what I make from my knotting and rope craft hobby. I now seem to be getting well-known and often called "The Knot Man".
I enjoy making items using fancy rope and knot craft techniques, which I then sell from my craft stall. Some times I encorporate driftwood and rope found on our local beach which give a wonderful maritine flavour of the coast.
My wife Margaret and I can be found at various events mainly in the west of the Isle of Wight. We contribute a percentage of our profit and collect donations for the Marine Conservation Society who are trying to promote caring for our seas, shores and marine life.
By viewing the portfolio pages, you can see a selection of the various items I make here on the island, or why not come along to see the stall at different events during the year.
If you can't manage to see us at any of the events then perhaps you would like to visit my studio at home. Please contact me prior to your visit to make sure we are there.
