Weekend Hashtag Project: #WHPthemakingof
Weekend Hashtag Project is a series featuring designated themes and hashtags chosen by Instagram’s Community Team. For a chance to be featured on the Instagram blog, follow @instagram and look for a post announcing the weekend’s project every Friday.
The goal this weekend is to roll up your sleeves and capture videos of making things by hand. Some tips to get you started:
- Use this project as a moment to dust off your skills or try something new. Whether it’s blacksmithing, origami, pottery or cooking, don’t be afraid to be creative, get your hands dirty and—most importantly—have fun!
- Don’t have a particular craft of your own? Seek out local crafters, bakers, artists and makers. Ask if you can learn about their work and share their craft through your videos.
- For showing process, think about how to pace your video. In addition to normal speed, you can use slow motion to draw out a single detailed moment or time lapse to fit an entire project into 15 seconds.
PROJECT RULES: Please only add the #WHPthemakingof hashtag to videos taken over this weekend and only submit your own videos to the project. Any tagged video taken over the weekend is eligible to be featured Monday morning.
