Celebrate National Craft Month with a Class

What is the difference between art and craft? The question isn’t new and has sparked debates for years.  Both are definitely within the realm of creativity!

One possible answer is that craft is has a predictable outcome – such as the crafting of a chair or piece of jewellery. It provides a product that has a purpose and use. Art, on the other hand, is unpredictable, doesn’t have a specific use (such as a painting or sculpture) and is used to evoke thought and emotion. Of course, this is a very simplistic explanation and doesn’t cover those ‘in-between’ creative activities! Oh well, the debate continues!

Spoiler Alert! Check out the mini classes that are scheduled from March 11 to 15 — there’s a ‘Madness’ in our methods!
