I learnt how to make a beautiful Christmas card out of string. Laurie, my teacher was very patient and helpful and so explained everything in a way that I could quickly pick up the pattern. The venue was absolutely delightful with the vintage china. It gave the lesson a very homely feeling and overall I found it rather therapeutic and non stressful.

Laurie O'Garro is a teacher, with over twenty years' experience working with children, teenagers and adults.

Since 2014, Laurie has specialised in a craft called 'string art'. From symbols to intricate geometric shapes, Laurie produces pieces large enough to be mounted on the wall and small enough to be given away as greetings cards.

Her work has been on show at pop up art exhibitions in Hammersmith and Ealing.

Take part in this rarely-seen class and be mesmerised and impressed by your own personal work of art.

This was my second class with Laurie and I am now officially hooked on string art. The kit arrived ahead of time with everything I needed and some extra resources to continue practicing. This is such an enjoyable way to spend your time, making the cards is so therapeutic and Laurie is a supportive and inspiring teacher. Thank you so much!
