Craft with clay  is fun for kids of all ages, whether you are working with playdough (bought or homemade), plasticine, salt dough or air drying clay. These projects are flexible enough to try with lots of types of clay. Your children will adore rolling, squeezing, twirling, and pulling easy-to-sculpt clay into these fun and imaginative craft projects.There is something very therapeutic about playing with clay even as an adult.  The tactile nature of clay lets young children develop their imaginations and their moter skills while having fun.

Fantasy book cover

London, UK based artist Aniko was craze about painting and crafting, and  also craze about Photoshop and photo manipulations, which she had practiced as a hobby since she was 14. Surprisingly, this exact hobby got her very first job in London and kept her employed for the next 5 years. Parallel to that  she had established her  little handmade crafting business from home and discovered polymer clay and sculpting. First as a hobby and then with much more professional attitude, sculpting very quickly took over her whole life and became visible to other crafters in social media.

fellt animal

In 2007 I made my first stuffed animal, a red horse, out of red polyester craft felt from my own pattern. I have been making animals ever since, and I've created cats, dragons, rabbits, and seahorses as well.

Today, my animals are made from high-quality wool felt and embroidered with wool and cotton threads. I am a biologist by day (I work with marine algae), and my animal designs are often inspired by the natural world, particularly my seahorses. I also take pride in the unique poses I've developed, particularly my prancing horses, and I love bringing each unique creation to life!floydine

mechanical insect art by Mike Libby

mechanical insect art by Mike Libby

Mike Libby, American contemporary artist creating works of art from a combination of the two, insect and an old mechanical electronic components, in order to create cybernetic sculptures. It happened when the discovery of a dead beetle left him wondering how it would look if it were mechanical inside. Out came an old watch and soon he had created a piece of art. He has now taken the art form to a new level by sourcing his specimens from high quality dealers who deal with insects from all over the world. He then inserts parts from antique watches and invites people to send in their own insects to be used. Mike create an Insect Lab which is customizes real insect specimens with antique watch parts and other technological components. From ladybugs to grasshoppers, each is individually hand adorned, and original a unique celebration of the contradictions between nature and technology.

cutlery art creations by Lewis Alessandro

cutlery art creations by Lewis Alessandro

Lewis Alessandro is a Mid-North Coast artist, who has established himself as one of Australia’s most unusual artisans, with art lovers clamouring for his work. Each piece of his art not only looks unique and intriguing to the eye, but it comes with a story of its own. You see, each sculpture is handcrafted from a little piece of history. They are made from old cutlery, forgotten spoons and forks that could potentially have travelled the seven seas, fed the starving through the depression, or created kitchen masterpieces! In fact, when creating some pieces, Lew and Sue Alessandro founders and creators of Cutlery Creations, can smell the aromas of dishes past, cooked and enjoyed many years ago. Like all good ideas, Alessandro’s sculptures came about by accident. Today, the Cutlery Creations menagerie includes frilled-neck lizards, dragonflies, wallabies, snakes, eagles, komodo dragons, turtles, parrots and many more.
