December is all about Artisan Crafts, baby! We are very excited to bring you a month full of articles, interviews and features about this wonderful world. But before we begin, what is exactly an artisan craft?

An artisan craft is a physical object made by an artisan completely by hand and usually in small quantities. Being an artisan, or a crafter, is being an artist that excels in the techniques of producing anything from a delicious meal to a deadly sword, from a cozy scarf to an adorable embroidery, from an elegant dress to a complete living room, from a cute plushie to a perfectly accurate doll, and so on.

As you can see this is already a huge gallery, but crafters also find ways to get extra creative and create the unimaginable, finding inspiration and potential in everything. It's a very rich, wonderful world to be a part of, full of possibilities and room to innovate.
