Here we were exploring what you can do with a length of string, some glue and your imagination. The process for this piece is fairly simple, soak some string in PVA glue and wrap it tightly around an object (inflatables work best as it makes them easier to remove) once dry remove the object and your left with this impressive looking product that you could turn into anything e.g. a shelf or lampshade. The possibilities are endless.

So here’s a step by step guide for you to try yourself.
