Retired rigger and blacksmith, Martin Casey, will demonstrate and teach the art — and skill — of knot making. Martin is a member of the International Guild of Knot Tiers. After a hitch in the U.S. Coast Guard, he worked as an industrial rigger and as a traditional rigger and blacksmith. He’s worked on tall ship restoration projects at the New Bedford Whaling Museum and did some blacksmithing for the HMS Surprise for the movie Master and Commander. Now, he “ties” for fun and enjoyment.
