Pawson Rope tricks

Des Pawson MBE is one of the world's leading authorities on knots and rope making.

The Moray Firth Partnership has funded him to support Portsoy's 'Faering Project'.

The photographs show him teaching the Faering team how to make ropes.

Unfortunately Des cannot be with us at the Festival but the team will be demonstrating their ropemaking skills at the old harbour near the foot of the Dounie.
