Create your own masterpiece with these free craft classes
Crafting offers a peace of mind you can’t buy…
But, here’s something else to add to your iso to-do list: arts and crafts.
Crafting, very much like cooking, helps reduce your stress levels and can give you that feeling of accomplishment, therefore making it a perfect way to spend your evenings at home.
And here to help are local creatives who’ve joined forces to post DIY projects and tutorials.
The best part? You don’t need to be an expert, nor have a closet filled with fancy materials, as the masterclasses call for basic supplies most people are likely to have on hand, such as magazine clippings and salt.
Check out this creation by @Glitches & Stitches that uses just a photo, paper and a needle and thread.

According to Natalya Konforti from Glitches and Stitches, “One of the reasons I’m such an advocate for creativity is for its mindfulness virtues. Crafting is like my therapy, it strikes just the right balance between repetitive task and deep thought to help clear my mind and calm anxiety. I hope these projects will inspire others to discover their creative side and offer a welcome distraction.”
