Hobby & craft ideas

Hobbies for the disabled, Colouring, Writing & Calligraphy

This post discusses adult colouring, different forms of writing and writing as an artform. These are hobbies that are easy to pick up and put down when you want to. They can always be waiting for you when you are feeling the creative juices flowing.

Hobbies for the disabled, tapestry & mosaics

Here I have written about tapestry and shown that they don’t have to be boring and can, in fact be done in many forms. Also, I’ve talked about my new found love of mosaics. These are kits that have everything ready without you having to cut glass or tile pieces. They also use resin blocks so there are no sharp edges to worry about. I’m addicted!

Hobbies for the disabled, Soap making

Soap making is something that I started doing with my daughter a couple of years ago. She bought me a starter kit for Christmas and we made them together. It’s so nice to take a shower and use homemade soap. You know it’s the scent of your choice and I even add ground almonds to mine to exfoliate! Take a read and see how to get started.

Scrapbooking as a family activity

Here I discuss combining a photo album with a journal to make a scrapbook of all your good times and memories. If you are having a bad day what better way to pick yourself up than by flicking through all the happy times.

How to make a ceramic leaf bowl

I appreciate that this isn’t available for everyone and I don’t know if it would work with polymer clay. However, I often get asked how I spend my time and how I make my leaf bowls so I’ve written a step by step account with photos.

If you do fancy trying out pottery and ceramics there might be a class near you. It’s very therapeutic and I find warm clay does wonders for my hands.


I don’t have many of these just yet but there are more coming soon. Watch this space!
