Craft artists create handmade objects, such as pottery, glassware, textiles or other objects that are designed to be functional. Fine artists, including painters, sculptors, and illustrators, create original works of art for their aesthetic value, rather than for a functional one.Both children and adults enjoy arts and crafts.
Children in schools may learn skills such as woodworking, wood carving, sewing, or making things with all sorts of material. Many community centres and schools have evening or day classes and workshops where one can learn arts and craft skills.
Although “crafts” today are usually hobbies enjoyed by amateurs, the word was used many centuries ago by professional people who had a guild system. Young people were taught by a master-craftsman and they often took many years to learn their skills to perfection.
