String art is the use of string, thread, wire or fibre as an art medium to create geometrical patterns or abstract designs. The medium is wound around a series of nails fixed to a surface or the edges of a pattern, or stitched through a pattern with a needle. The lines formed are straight lines , but it is the slightly different angle or position each line takes and intersects with other lines that form the mesmerizing patterns.
Here, participants will learn about the different kinds of string art construct their own patterns using the Maths construction set and make a geometric pattern to take home.
