March 2021 Spotlight is on National Craft Month

by Unknown User on 2021-03-01T00:00:00-05:00 in Arts & Crafts | Comments

During National Craft Month, crafters get creative with their supplies. Artisans set to work on a design, and different craftspeople put their skills together to bring an idea to life.

With a broad range of crafts to choose from, National Craft Month inspires all kinds of mediums. From paper and wood to fabrics, paint and metal craft, the month is dedicated to creativity and inspiration.  Whatever motivates you, take your craft from idea to reality this month. If you’ve only been thinking about learning, sign up for a class.

Learning a craft offers many benefits. Expressing one’s creativity provides stress relief and can lower blood pressure much like meditation.  There’s natural positive reinforcement from learning a new skill. With each new step learned, the satisfaction from gaining the skill is rewarding.  Most crafts require fine motor skills. Crafts teach young children these skills as well keep ours sharp as we age.

Crafting with a group becomes a social event. Gather with friends and complete a larger project or several smaller ones. Making items for charity, such as blankets for premature babies or activity bags for the children of veterans, makes your efforts that much more valuable.  When creativity becomes stress relieving and generous, it fills the soul.
