They will learn about the origins of this fascinating craft and learn how to create unique pieces of wall art. We guarantee they will come away with work they will be proud of.

The workshops are suitable for any level of experience. Everyone is given guidance and encouragement as they try their hand at a new craft that can be described as embroidery on card.

Each week, we will try out different designs and explore new ways of creating string art, working with wool and string, as well as learning new stitches. During the day everyone will make two pieces and get to choose which one they mount.

String Art classes are perfect for:

  • Building self-confidence
  • Focus
  • Concentration
  • Patience
  • Creativity
  • Fine motor skills
