Take the next step on your crafting journey. With these fun interactive classes, you can explore a wide range of topics and techniques, to help you learn basic craft essentials and take arts and crafts with hands-on experience by completing and sharing your own craft projects. Crafting provides an opportunity for self-expression and creativity. The focus that's involved with crafting stimulates areas of my brain that have been dormant since my middle school art class, keeping our brain sharp and more well-rounded. Also, crafting really improves our mood. Although it can be challenging sometimes, doing something productive (think exercising) helps us get my mind off other things and simply just makes us happier.
