Craft hobbies going viral

Celebrating International Craft Day on 15 October, ArtsHub brings you top craft hobbies that can immerse you in the joy of making.

The humble handiwork of craft has unexpectedly become social media’s new lover – especially on the video-based platform Tik Tok where creators showcase an eye-catching blend of handmade aesthetics and pop cultural imagery.

Highlighting the increasing value that younger generations put on sustainability and avoiding fast-fashion, craft has also been a welcome distraction from the digital age, and comes with surprising health benefits.
