What is String Art?

String art - The hip and groovy artform so fashionable in the 1970‘s is making a comeback. During a time when everything old is new again and we are finding a renewed appreciation for handmade treasures, the technique of using nails or pins and coloured string, wool and thread to create wonderful wallpieces is finding a growing and appreciative audience. For children, it’s a magical way to create an art piece they will treasure for years to come  

Interestingly, string art has its origins in maths! It was a very forward thinking and inventive female pioneer, Mary Everest Boole, who first used the ‘stringing’ technique at the end of the 19th century to explain mathematical problems to kids.String art went through a few transformations from there until it exploded in popularity in the 1960’s and 70’s. Who doesn’t remember a beautiful string art sunset on the walls of the family home!
