Colorful, monochromatic, textured or flat, woven works of all kinds have become more popular than ever. And one weaver whose work we have our eye on is Hello Hydrangea’s founder Lindsey Campbell. With materials from around the world, pattern galore and even a few pom poms for good measure, she takes centuries-old weaves and gives them an eclectic update. It’s a style uniquely hers.
Not only is Lindsey a stellar artist, we recently learned she’s also a teacher. Perfect, we thought, Who better to walk our readers through making a weaving of their own?! And so today’s DIY was born. The tutorial she’s put together for us, albeit simple, is bound to enrich your space. Better yet, pretty much all ya need is some cardboard, dye and yarn. So scroll down to take a look at some of Lindsey’s work, gather your supplies and start crafting your own weaving from scratch. Enjoy! —Garrett
