Take your 'quarantine craft' skills to the next level

Many studies have shown that artistic expression goes much further than relaxation, as the repetitive nature of craft activities can also assist with stress relief, anxiety and even phobias. So it is no surprise that many of us re-discovered our forgotten creative pursuits whilst in self-isolation.

Wet Felting – Surface Design and Texture

All ages and skill levels were able to get onboard the global 'quarantine craft' trend, with many embracing the practice of needlework, including embroidery, crochet, knitting and sewing.

What's great about these solo handicrafts is minimal materials are required and with just basic skills, your creativity will be ignited.
