String Art

About a month ago, it was my turn to tutor Art Collective, so I chose something very easy and then I hardly had to tutor at all! They are very simple but effective, and took between 1 and 2 hours each to make. I snapped a few pictures of Meredith's (the deer) and my two...

Just a note, Meredith's deer is about 20cm in length, so considerably smaller than the diamond. Lots of fiddly hammering and stringing, but it paid off!

We used 19 x 1.60mm panel pins, and you could use anything like thin wool, bakers twine, embroidery thread or string. Just a tip - we found it helpful to tie the piece of string off on the same nail as you started stringing.
Big thanks to the very patient husband for knocking together some pallet canvases for everyone to use. I have a few spares so am looking forward to trying a few more ideas. But for now I'm loving the diamond in our lounge.
