Hobby Supplies FAQs

What are some examples of fun crafts and hobbies to try?

There are many fantastic crafts and hobbies to try that are suitable for different ages and skill levels. Below, we go through some popular hobbies that you might enjoy:

  • Wool Roving and Felting: One of the crafts you could pick up as a new hobby is felting. There are different types of felting nowadays, but the type of felting we are talking about is needle felting. Needle felting is a craft where you use special needles to interlock wool fibres - this with the aim to create a condensed material. To start felting, you will need some wool and various sizes of felting needles - this ensures you have the right tools for the job. There are many different felting needles available nowadays, but you want to look out for the most popular options - this includes number 36, 38, and 40 triangle point needles.
  • Clay Modelling: Most people have not heard of clay modelling, but it is just a fancy term for clay sculpting. You may remember clay sculpting from your childhood, because this type of craft is often done during childhood, albeit with child's clay. As an adult, there are more options available to you where clay modelling is concerned. When you execute clay modelling, you can create a three-dimensional piece of artwork. Crafters can use three different types of clay to do this - this includes plastilina (oil-based clay), self-hardening clay (non-firing clay), and ceramic pottery clay. Depending on the tools you have available, you must choose a type of clay that matches what you have available for your craft. So, if you have a pottery oven, you can go all out with some genuine ceramic pottery clay.
  • Candle Making: Another craft you may not have considered yet is candle making, although this type of craft is becoming increasingly more popular. With candle making, crafters can create some of the most intricate candles - this includes scented candles, oddly shaped candles, and many others. You can also customise the colour and scent of your candle, making it truly unique!
  • Beading and Jewellery Making: Making jewellery is a rewarding and fun craft! You can make fun beaded friendship bracelets as well as earrings, necklaces and more accessories. Shop our ready-to-use friendship bracelet kits and the entire jewellery-making supplies and beads
