Chao-Mi an I went to visit the amazing Knot Museum in Ipswich. The museum and knot workshop is in the back garden of Des Pawson's private house. Des is a real expert in all things knotting especially in regards to seafaring knots. Over the years he has build up a substantial library and museum which is free for anyone to view by appointment. It is well worth a visit.
We were keen to marry the Chinese knot expertise with the local seafaring knot tradition and were very pleased to find such a wealth of expertise so close to Colchester.
A circular knot frame - sounds familiar?
