String Art

  • Day | Date: Saturday | March 9
  • Time: 4:00-6:00 PM (2 hours)
  • Cost: $30

String art involves the use of string, thread, wire or fibre as an art medium. The defining characteristic of this craft is its humble simplicity and fine delicacy of the material, often juxtaposed against the intricate elaborateness of its webbed configurations. Traditionally, string art was created at the turn of the 19th century by a teacher to assist students learning geometry using art; and then later was popularized as decorative craft by the late 1960s. During this class we will create our own patterns and designs using string and nails on wood. Finished products can be used as seasonal decoration or given as gifts.
