I like to make presents myself. Long before it became modern. Nowadays it is very popular to make something with your own 2 hands. But Latvians (especially women) have a long tradition of crafts and handicrafts. Almost a third do some knitting, crocheting or beading. In recent years other crafts have become popular – decoupage, felting, silk drawing, mosaic technique etc. etc.
Latvia is a very creative nation, it’s not for nothing that the Etsy team comes here to understand why there are so many crafts people compared to the number of citizens – “do we have something in the air?”
When your own skills and stock hidden somewhere in boxes – maybe I will need that thing some day – isn’t enough, Hobbyset is your best help to be creative. The shop offers a very big variety of materials and tools for your original ideas.
It is great that you can see examples of craft works and the sales assistant will give the best advice on how to use different materials. But if you are not sure about your skills and just want to start – there are different seminars which you can attend to learn different techniques, lead by experienced teachers.
