Doug Groves has been sharing his knowledge and skills with anyone that wants to delve deep into the art or simply learn the basics. I watched form and function come together beautifully as Doug braided strings of rawhide into strong rope, all while explaining technique and theory to an engaged and involved audience. The display of work around the room by artisans and students alike humbled me as I walked about, but Doug’s easy and informative lessons helped ground the entire experience.
