What you'll do
Instructions are kept to a minimum so that you can make the most of this three-hour experience. You will create your own cards, which can be used to make birthdays and anniversaries. Alternatively, they make beautiful notelets, encouraging you to get back into the habit of writing to people. Over the course of the three hours, you will make up to five cards (6"x4" high quality card). You will have a wonderful selection of crochet threads. The designs are prepared in advance to save time. At the end of the class, you will receive a lovely box or organza bag in which to display your cards. This is a unique experience that will only enhance your holiday experience. The workshop is suitable for children from 8 years up, as well as adults.
I teach string art, the art of making cards and gifts using thread and card. I don't know anyone else who does this in London, and everyone I speak to is mesmerised when I show them my work. I currently have pieces on sale at Open Ealing Pop Up art studio in Ealing, West London (Sept 2019). I have twenty-six years' teaching experience, and have worked with young children, teens and adults. I've been running string art clubs in schools and workshops around London since 2014. What's so great about string art is that everyone who does it experiences feelings of peace: many describe the experience as therapeutic, meditative and mindful. One participant found the process 'satisfying'. For a few hours you are invited to park your stresses, clear your mind and go with the string art flow.
