The art of lashing spars together with ropes to create structures such as bridges and towers was one of the pioneering skills used by 18th and 19th century military engineers who went ahead of an army to pioneer a route. Today's Scouts use these pioneering skills to construct functional items such as tables, towers, bridges, gateways, and fences. More importantly, assembling pioneering structures provides Scouts with excellent hands-on activities for teamwork and problem solving experiences.
Rope Works Lashings is a two disk set of DVDs that presents 19 different lashings in an animated format. The animated format allows emphasis to be placed on the interaction between the rope and the spars without the distraction of hand motions and background graphics.
The author's more than 50 years experience with research, testing, and teaching of pioneering skills provides the basis for the information contained on the Rope Works Lashings DVDs.
