    I really enjoyed the class. The instructor, Marla, was very knowledgeable and great at explaining the process of soapmaking. She covered the safety concerns and do's & don't of working with lye. I feel comfortable enough to be able to do this on my own at home. She was kind and helpful, going above and beyond my expectations.

Discover the Best Crafting Classes in NYC

Crafting is the act of making something decorative by hand, using your skill and creativity. Some people craft as a hobby, while for others it is a full-time job. There are many different types of crafting, and they involve working with a range of different materials such as leather, clay, metal, and fabric. Some types of crafting are focused on upcycling or repurposing old items. Crafting can be used to create all kinds of items, from bath bombs, to scarves, to furniture.

Why You Should Learn Crafting in NYC

One of the biggest reasons to learn crafting is for the personal fulfillment you’ll get from making something with your own hands. Many people who craft say that they get a real sense of accomplishment from this activity. In addition, crafting can be therapeutic, forcing you to focus on your materials, and temporarily forget about any worries you might be dealing with.

There are also practical reasons to learn crafting. You can save yourself money by making your own items, such as clothing or home decor. In addition, these items will be more meaningful than something bought from a store, because you have put your time and effort into making them. Crafting can also be a lucrative side job, since there is a thriving market for unique hand-made items.
