I love Crafts, I love how crafts can bring people together from meeting up with my friends to teach or learn a new skill to going to collage with my sister for our ceramics evening class. I love how it feels to learn, explore, and experiment. I love that it can be a gateway to relaxation and self-worth and how it feels like a therapy. I also love (and I’m aware I love a lot when it comes to arts and crafts) I also love that craft can cross over and be used in fine art. It can be the making that is important or it can be what is made that is important or it can be both. through delivering workshops I see how crafts can build self-esteem and be enjoyable. It encourages creative thought from a simple starting point. In some ways I see craft as a skill to learn and art what you make with that skill.
