I’m so thrilled to introduce you to another new contributor to Lars, Kathryn Godwin of Studio Cultivate, whose work I’ve admired for sometime (did you ever see this project or this one? So good!). Kathryn is an installation artist and stylist and spent a number of years doing beautiful installations for Anthropologie. I’m pleased to have her here on Lars.
The beauty and tactility of weavings and wall tapestries have always been fascinating, my love of it grew when I learned of Sheila Hicks in school. With the renewal of it’s popularity with the craft movement, I was reminded of the latch and hook rugs we use to make as kids. Understanding many may not have the time, patience or space to invest in even a mini loom to be worth while for a full weaving, this DIY helps combine the latch and hook idea with the soft organic cascades of a yarn tapestry.
