Breaking down 2 Hours of Agenda

Welcoming participants to the workshop. Order Drinks and food if needed and grab a seat.

Brief introduction on string art. Deciding on color combination for the workshop. Spend 15 minutes Discussing the design choices and allowing participants to select their preferred design and decide on color combinations for the wooden base and the thread. Our instructor is very helpful in helping you decide the color combinations if you are confused.

All participants will be provided with wooden board, paint, color palettes with paint and brushes. Now is the time to get your hands into painting and get the base for the string art ready.

Once you know which pattern you would like for the string art, you will be guided for doing the entire string art. It might seem little complicated in beginning but trust us, once you get it it becomes very soothing and easy too. We encourage creativity and experimentation in workshops so feel free to talk about your thoughts with the tutor.

Once done with the string art, comes the best part – showing your work to each other. Followed by a Q&A session where you are free to ask questions to the tutor or each other about the process of the individual’s string art. Because everyone would have selected different color combinations and a different design, all the outputs would be so different to look at.

Thank all participants for coming to the workshop. Feel free to hang around the café if you wish to. Note: The actual timings for each segment might vary slightly based on the pace of the participants and any unforeseen circumstances.

Most Common Questions

String art might look as very intricate and difficult design but with correct guidance it can turn out to be pretty easy. It has got lot of repetitions and hence once learnt it is an easy catch.

One can create string art wooden board or any hard base which can take the nails. Wooden board, nails, printout with markings of nails, embroidery threads, scissor, paint and brushes are some of the basic materials required for string art.

It depends on the design you choose. Although, there are some steps which are common in every string art design which is beginning with a starting knot, doing the string pattern and end knot.

Most of the participants in my workshops are absolute beginners with next to no knowledge of string art. It is a great medium to learn for beginners as well. As a beginner if you are doing string art without any guidance, I would recommend to get all the materials required gathered first.

Paint goes on the base which is wood. Wood is painted, nailed and then thread art is done on it.

Nails are one of the best choices for string art because of their stability. The wooden board is first marked to know where exactly the nails are going. Nails are then hammered to get the board ready for string art. Once the board is ready, it can be completed on the board.

String art can be tied off with the same knot that you started with. Both knots should be tight to secure the string art for years coming. Once completed with end know, trim off the excess threads and your string art is ready for display.

Creating each thread pattern has a different technique. Some might not need so much concentration while others might need your 100% attention to know which threads are going where. Deciding which pattern one would like to make and understanding how to do it is the base of string art.

String art ends with an ending knot. One of the last steps is to trim any access thread and to make it nice and tidy.
