This workshop will focus on the use of concentric circles to produce bold and colorful designs using dots to create extraordinary arrangements.

Who ever said that art is “knot” your thing? String art begins with the pounding of nails into a block of wood, then a methodic wrapping of colored embroidery threads around the nails to create pretty designs. You’ll find the transition from hammer to nail a great way to decompress! Capacity: 16 students. Minimum: 5 students. Ages 18+.
