Hobby Kits for Friends & Family

By Kate Riley

It was a day of learning and teaching, I spent a few hours this morning learning trimming techniques on the pottery wheel at my ceramics class, next I spent the afternoon teaching my 84 year old mother-in-law how to set up email and use the internet. It was a day of sharing knowledge! 🙂

I’ve always been interested in trying new creative techniques: making resin art and resin crafts, playing with air dry clay, experimenting with wood burning, and cyanotype printing, the list goes on. This weekend I’m working with a new medium, it’s not clay or resin, you’ll see!

I love the idea of giving experiences as gifts instead of things (see this list for plenty of ideas) and creative hobbies are a great one! Perhaps it’s time for you to start a new hobby, something you’ve always wanted to try. I can speak from personal experience that my ceramics classes are so enjoyable and fulfilling, so much so I set up a little ceramics workbench in my garage to continue my practice at home.

Perhaps you know someone who’s always talked of trying out a new hobby and they just need a kick start. You could be the spark that gets someone interested in something new. My belief is we all are creative and we should all have a hobby that we enjoy.

So many of these make great gifts for friends or family members or you! If you’ve ever wanted to try a creative project, these kits get you started. Who knows, it could be the beginning of a longer path in these fields.
