String art is also known as Pin and thread art. In this art, the arrangement of color threads is suspended between some points to form geometrical patterns. This art was quite popular in the 70s but was vanished for some time. Recently this retro craft enjoyed its comeback while becoming a craze among young artists, there’s no way it’s going! Making DIY String Art can be a fun and thrilling experience as String craft requires very few materials as well adds some beauty to your walls.
To share the magic of this enthralling experience with our circle family, we at Rooftop organized an amazing session with the duo of expert artists Jasleen and Ruchika.
