You can get so immersed in the creative process of making as to forget everything else. And the result is worth the time taken –  a unique piece that will never be repeated.

You may specialise in a particular discipline and explore its techniques for years. Or you dip into many types of craft,  skimming the surface in most cases, but coming up with novel combinations.

It’s the latter, that I favour. And the result is what you will see in Arty Crafting – a mix of hand-made pieces by myself and others, combined with reviews of events and places that inspire us.
