Making things that matter
The craft field is very varied. It includes ceramics, textiles, jewellery, wood and glass work, gold and silversmithing, puppets, toys, small-scale furniture making, textiles and leather work. Prospects range from selling work at local markets and fairs through to commanding huge fees for one-off commissions.
