Fishing net

With the upcoming week 5 exhibition, I was looking into buying a fishing net to include in a piece, as it is an essential part of the lifestyle of the artisanal fishing in Saint Louis. However, after a while, I thought it could be interesting to try and make one instead.

I followed a rather simplistic video tutorial on how to make a net:

And bought the string and start making it. Below are the progression pictures and the finished net.



Overall it was quite a good experience as I feel like having a hands-on relationship with the material used in making this gave me an appreciation for all the crafts involved with the fisherman lifestyle.
