on a shoestring

“Imagination is the beginning of creation. You imagine what you desire, you will what you imagine, and at last, you create what you will”
  George Bernard Shaw

a little bit about us

Started mid way through 2016 after an unexpected return to the United Kingdom I decided to merge my interests into one hub. The result was "on a shoestring", an affordable art shop and space that offers small classes and events along with the best selection of loose leaf teas in South Wales. After a summer of serving the residents of Sketty I discovered a real need for an affordable and accessible space to offer a wider range of services. I soon turned to we, and we set about looking to develop our links with the Swansea community, especially those with a desire for a creative outlet. As we draw to the end of our first year, we now look to expand into a larger and longer term premises and we aim to offer creative courses to hundreds of Swansea residents in the coming few months.
