Service Description

Create, relax and have fun from 7:30pm - 9:30pm Inspired by all things heart shaped join Laurie O'Garro, Founder of Funky String Art, who will guide you through creating your own mindful, colourful, contemporary piece of string art. Our host Laurie will expertly take you through the stages of construction and then adding your own creative twist to the traditional Valentine. Once you get the hang of the pattern, you can lose yourself in this meditative activity, and before you know it, you’ll have completed what, at first glance looks complicated, but is in fact a series of repeated stitches. After a welcome and brief introduction to string art, you will be shown how to do the heart stitch. Once that’s done, you can choose from a variety of brightly coloured threads and customise the design to reflect your preferences or those of your loved one. You will take your 8"x10" piece of string art home in a 300gsm white linen card mount with backboard and clear bag to protect it. Please note the wooden frame in the photos is not included, but Laurie can advise where to get one like this. All materials included. For the moment we will not be providing food or drink, but you are most welcome to BYOB! Bring your own bottle and nibbles or order in if you like. ​Suitable for beginners and up.
