JOLLY KNOTS: Deck the halls with a bounty of bottles!
Always looking to combine arts with practical skills, The Artful Sailor Whole Earth Nautical Supply, located at 410 Washington Street, by the skate park, in Port Townsend, WA, will again merrily exhibit the fancy knotwork of Jacob Borkowski on Saturday, December 7th, 2019 from 5-8:00 pm.
Borkowski is a Seattle-based cabinet maker who has been interested in marlinespike seamanship and fancy knots since he was a 14 year old Sea Scout. His every finger a marlinespike, Jacob’s specialty is covering bottles with intricate knotting. Ever popular, Jacob’s marlinespike artistry sells out in The Artful Sailor store.
B.Y.O.B. and have it turned into a sailor’s practical work of art.
There will also be music, treats and salty gifts in a warm, convivial atmosphere permeated by the delicious aromas of maritime tradition!
