Laurie O’Garro has been teaching the craft of string art to children and adults since 2014. Using coloured thread and card, she has found a novel way to make greetings cards and wall art. Just as important as the mesmerising pieces of work that her students produce, is the sense of peace and relaxation that participants experience. The process has often been described as therapeutic and mindful, with students leaving classes with the feeling of having spent time focused on their well-being. Laurie has moved her classes online and she already has fans of the craft.
