Leigh Hardy founded Indigo & Violet Studio in 2017. Leigh is an interior designer by trade and felt that it was imperative to have a brick and mortar space that was designed specifically for craft events, so she created exactly that in Chicago’s Lakeview neighborhood. When Leigh moved to Chicago from Louisiana, she had no idea that opening a craft studio would be in the cards but now couldn’t imagine pursuing anything else. As a longtime craft supply enthusiast and and savvy shopper, Leigh is always on the hunt for salvaged materials and new project ideas. When she's not working in the studio, Leigh enjoys cooking, baking, walking on the lakefront, and passionately watching LSU football - Geaux Tigers!
