Scout skills: lashings

Lashings are used to join together poles (or 'spars' as they are often called), most commonly for making up frameworks in pioneering projects such as gateways, bridges and aerial runways to name but a few!

On a smaller scale, you can make camp gadgets, for example, wash stands, tables, place racks or even a camp shower.

This guide shows you how to have a go at lashings, as well as teach others.
