The handmade movement in the Philippines has been continuously growing in the past couple of years and we're not surprised if you've been bitten by the creative bug as well. But with all the materials available to you right now, we know it can get pretty overwhelming! So we put together The Beginner's Guide to Crafting with a list of things you need when starting your crafter journey.

  1. Paper

Whether you're into sketching, painting, lettering, or papercutting, stocking up on good quality paper is a must!

  1. Paint

This can be used for illustrations, lettering, and calligraphy!

  1. Pencils

For sketching drafts, penciling in ideas, and everything in between.

  1. Pens

Start with the basics before moving on to the big guns!

  1. Notebook

For all your ideas—big or small—that suddenly pop in your head in the middle of your commute.

  1. Paintbrush

Start with a round brush and familiarize yourself with the different strokes you can make with it.

  1. Water brush

Perfect for painting in transit. No need to pack a cup of water!

  1. Washi tape

So many uses for washi: to hold your paper in place; to include as part of a collage; to personalize your craft tools; and so much more!

  1. Organizer

To put some sort of order in your art chaos.

  1. The Candy DIY Book

So you'll never run out of projects to create or take inspiration from.

Visit the newly-opened The Craft Central located at the 3F of Greenbelt 5 to build your craft kit! Happy making!
