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.
Whether you're into sketching, painting, lettering, or papercutting, stocking up on good quality paper is a must!
This can be used for illustrations, lettering, and calligraphy!
For sketching drafts, penciling in ideas, and everything in between.
Start with the basics before moving on to the big guns!
For all your ideas—big or small—that suddenly pop in your head in the middle of your commute.
Start with a round brush and familiarize yourself with the different strokes you can make with it.
- Water brush
Perfect for painting in transit. No need to pack a cup of water!
- 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!
To put some sort of order in your art chaos.

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