String Art Bicycle
By Comfort Smithson from Fundi Box
23th DECEMBER, 2020
Life is like riding a bicycle; you don't fall off unless you stop pedalling.
A new year marks the start of a new journey. Given how 2020 has been, I'm sure we are all ready to put it behind us and look forward to better days and more so a better year ahead. However, all new beginings require a gentle, humble and simple start. And in a bicycle in so many ways represents resonates that way with many. In Africa, bicycles can be found almost everywhere, it is a means of transport, a source of income (as a boda boda) and of course a great source of exercise. :-)
For January box, we will be making the most of the slow craft, the string art. This art is one of the greatest forms of exploring your creativity. Once you have the nails in your board, although you will have a template guide, the strings and the colours will do the talking. You can decide how intense of light it will be. Once you get the first few strings going, it all starts to flow quite easily.
This kit will most definetly have a video tutorial to help your journey and guide you through the process. Looking forward to sharing this project with you.
The kit includes:
- One cork board
- 170 nails
- Embroidery floss threads
- 2 templates
- Full instructions to guide you through
And just like all other Fundi Boxes, it will include special gift Sourced from Africa just for you.
(This kit is has now sold out. You can learn more about joining us for future kits at the bottom of this page).
