There are so many crafts to learn, and so little time to learn (and do) them in.  And those who know me know I have much more free time than most people!

Still, if time permits, these crafts I am interested in learning:

1)  Pottery/ceramics
2)  Silk Screening – Easy Silk Screening Tutorial
3)  Enameling – Awhile back, I saw this jewelry designer profiled on HGTV and I’ve wanted to learn enamelling ever since
4)  Glass Blowing
5)  Spinning and Dyeing Yarn – I thought I was going to do that this year but still haven’t gotten around to it
6)  Wax carving for lost wax casting in jewelry design – I’ve actually done this before but didn’t really take to it.  I’m still very interested in the technique though
7)  Furniture making
8)  Pave setting in jewelry design

I’m also very interested in learning design on a more formal level, particularly graphic and interior design.  What I’d do with this knowledge, I’m not really sure, which is one of the reasons I’ve never really pursued either through formal classes.

What crafts are you interested in learning?

    Well I wanted to learn knitting, but I have now accomplished that. The other ones would be:
    Doll house furniture making
    glass blowing
    glass bead making
    batiking
    cake decorating
    I’m sure there is more, but I can’t think of any right now

    Well let’s see,
    I learned to sew about ten years ago in junior high, but didn’t have the patience for it at the time. Now that I’m older I really want to take it up again. I bought a sewing machine and am looking to buy some super cute Amy Butler fabric to sew myself a skirt. The list of skills I would like to learn is very long but the relearning of sewing tops the list. By the way I was quite inspired by your Police top.

    I first learned to sew about the same time you did, Ashley. For whatever reason, I didn’t take to it. But I have to admit, those skills I learned so many years ago have helped me in “relearning,” though I’ve got a long way to go! Amy Butler’s fabrics are fantastic and so inspirational. If you make a skirt, be sure to send me a pic!

    I would like to get back into knitting, which I was quite into for a while, then I moved, which always disrupts one’s life tremendously.
    I would also like to:
    paint
    take pastry classes
    learn to make cocktails
    get better at gardening
    learn to accessorize my outfits
    get back into photography
    I realize not all of these are true “crafts” though, they are crafty in some respect.
    Thanks for asking the question…especially when I’m on the brink of a solid month of vacation!

    For me, I am interested in wood carving and furniture making. Anything that is carpentry in nature, I love to learn it.
