Hobbies, part three


Handicrafts involve making things with your hands. Many hobbyists engage in needlework activities, notably crocheting, needlepoint, knitting, and sewing. Using woodworking tools, they can create carvings, furniture, and bowls.

Other handicrafts include ceramics, metalworking, jewellery making, weaving, batik, and leatherworking.

There are countless other hobbies: flying model aeroplanes by remote control, raising pets, gardening, photography, and blogging are rewarding hobbies.
