Craftisian Is Opening The Doors

Craftisian is opening the doors to the crafts of many kinds. This sure is an ambitious step but I believe there should be a place online which multi-faceted as well as single-focused craftsmen may call home.

Whatever the craft, the finished project always tells a story. A story of dedication and accomplishment. I invite you to come here daily to share your craft stories, ask questions, seek inspiration and keep your inner creativity burning.

With so many different crafts the biggest challenge was to pinpoint the core categories. I decided to begin with the following Craftisian Guilds:

Ceramic.Craftisian
Pots, sculptures, pottery glazing, firing, embossing…

Glass.Craftisian
Glass blowing, etching, enameling, painting, stained glass…

Leather.Craftisian
Leather carving, stitching, painting, dying…

Metal.Craftisian
Blacksmithing, casting, welding, gilding, enameling…

Paper.Craftisian
Origami, paper marbling, decoupage, embossing, cardmaking, scrapbooking…

Textile.Craftisian
Patchwork, quilting, knitting, crochet, dyeing, tapestry…

Wood.Craftisian
Woodworking, furniture making, wood burning, wood turning cabinet making, carving, marquetry, intarsia, carpentry…

As you may notice, each guild has a dedicated subdomain which serves as the online access point. The guilds contain projects, blogs and forum. This should set up the tone and structure for inspiration and discussions. Membership profiles are not scoped to guilds so you are free to participate in as many as you want.

I invite you to explore Wood.Craftisian, expand your horizons and hopefully invite other craftsmen with positive vibe.

Any feedback is appreciated as always.
Thank you.
