This engraved wooden string art kit has been designed in honor of St. Zelie Martin, mother of St. Therese of Lisieux and patron saint of lace-making. The complete kit includes two 7 x 7 inch engraved 5mm plywood panels, string, bobbins, brass-plated nails and picture hangers, a mini hammer, and full-color instructions. You’ll make two string art plaques: one with an engraved St. Zelie quote, “Carry on bravely” and a string art border, the other with an engraved lace border and a geometric pattern string art center.
The craft is appropriate for adults and crafty kids ten and up. It requires no special equipment. The finished plaques make great gifts.
The Carry On Bravely plaque with string and nails is included in the Summer Ordinary Time Subscription Box.
The kit is available here as a complete two plaque set, or as a Lace Panel add-on which includes the lace panel only, string, bobbins, hanger, and hammer (no nails are included, as the nails that come in the subscription box will make both panels)
