The 7th Week of 2017 in Photos “All Things Crafty”.

“And I believe that the best learning process of any kind of craft is just to look at the work of others”.
                                        Wole Soyinka

Craft is defined as an art, trade, or occupation requiring special skill, especially manual skill.

Handmade creation is an important human activity.

“Creating something with your hands fosters pride and satisfaction, but also provides psychological benefits. When you make something, you feel productive, but the engagement and exploration involved in the doing can move your mind and elevate your mood.” 
                                             Carrie Barron, M.D., a psychiatrist

Crafting  has a therapeutic effect on many people.

I took all the photos at our local museum. These things were made at the beginning of the 20th century.

Thank you for reading!
