About the Artform

String art is characterized by an arrangement of coloured thread strung between points to form geometric patterns or representational designs such as a ship's sails. This art form is not a new fad; its origins go back to the 19th century. It is the brainchild of Mary Everest Boole who was in search of a way to introduce children to mathematical ideas. String art came back in the late 1960s as a decorative craft in the form of books and kits. This retro craft requires very few materials and is an inexpensive way to add some personality to your space around. It's an excellent project for beginners. Today, string art is utilized by art lovers young and old as a pastime, DIY project, and much more.
