Which Craft?

Having an enjoyable and relaxing hobby can help when you're feeling bored, stressed, or just creative! But if you are new to the creative world it can be daunting trying to choose a craft to suit you.

Like any activity, it is very important to pick a craft which you'll enjoy. The great thing about being creative is that there is no right or wrong way to express your creativity, and there is so much choice that if something doesn't suit you after you've tried it out for a while, then move on to something new until you find the perfect activity. Before you start, you should consider a few points that can help you decide which craft is right for you. Click here to read more.
