Celebrate National Craft Month With These Incredible Online Courses (To Get You Started!)

National Craft Month Best Online Courses

Did you know that in 1994 the Craft & Hobby Association created a wonderful celebration to motivate people to rediscover their creativity during an entire month?. National craft month should be celebrated every week, for real. If there’s something that helped me with my mental health during the pandemic, I have to say without a single doubt was making and creating.

There’s something magical and healing about learning a new art technique, proving yourself you can make cool things you can be proud of. Whether you are interested in pottery, painting or embroidery, I’ve summed up my favourite DIY online courses you need to take as soon as you can to get you started.

Let’s do this!
