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.

What a wonderful way to spend the afternoon. I absolutely loved this class and cannot recommend it highly enough. The kit arrived in the post with all the things I needed and the card came out beautifully. A lovely activity that is fun and therapeutic delivered by an excellent teacher. Thank you Laurie.

Really enjoyed this chilled-out couple of hours with like-minded people. This is a great introduction to a simple art. I am rubbish at sewing but could manage this. The teacher Laurie is patient and friendly. Do this class! You won't regret it. (The kit is posted out to you the week before the class with easy-to-thread needles).

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!

I spent a very enjoyable and rewarding 2 hours at this workshop. All the materials we needed were provided and Laurie was a very clear and patient teacher, guiding us through each design so that we were successful even at our first attempts. The designs she chose for us were simple enough so that we were all able to complete them in this one session, even though we were all new to this craft. As we started to go at different speeds Laurie was able to guide us all individually. I thoroughly recommend this class and teacher.

This was a fabulous experience. Creating a handmade arty card with needle and thread was so joyous and therapeutic. The highlight for me was having my 9 year old son participate lasting almost 2 hours (now that is success being kids these days are glued to devices). The reward of completing a beautiful personal card to give or for keepsake was delightful. I can honestly say this session made me remember the importance of reviving those old arts and crafts. I will definitely recommend for adults and children. Whether it’s birthday parties, or looking out for family sessions. A real treat.

The class was fantastic, I made two cards in two hours. The instructions were clear, the teacher was friendly and patient. Making cards with string is a fabulous idea and this brought back childhood memories of me making items with my mum. Also the price was very reasonable.

Attended a second workshop today and loved it even more! It’s a great way to relax, express your creativity and meet like minded people. Laurie is a great teacher. The whole environment is friendly and you get to take your beautiful creations home! Will definitely attend more in future to learn new patterns :)

Laurie is a wonderful teacher - she’s calm, welcoming and knowledgable and she made the session engaging and enjoyable. The session was great and I can’t wait to go along to another - it’s really relaxing and lovely to learn something new and it was so much fun to spend a couple of ideas just enjoying doing something crafty in a lovely group and with a lovely teacher. Thank you so much Laurie!

Excellent, ended up having a one on one class with Laurie and thoroughly enjoyed both the conversation and learning a new skill. Laurie sent out the materials beforehand and it was nice to receive them in the post. Great teacher and very patient!

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.

We absolutely loved our class with Laurie. I wasn't sure how well a craft class would work online but it was great and the time flew by. Laurie was amazing to organise this with throughout - from sorting out the logistics of getting us the art supplies, right through to actually teaching a bunch of enthusiastic-but-not-that-artistic people (apart from 1 or 2). Laurie is very patient! Would definitely recommend

Laurie is a fantastic and very patient teacher who somehow managed to simultaneously teach three different geometric designs to a rabble of six of us, on three different screens - without losing her patience for one millisecond! Was great fun
