Handicraft allows you to learn a number of skills, including being precise, accurate and creative. Handicraft is really popular amongst the young and old, and is massive in certain cultures across the world.

  • What is handicraft exactly?
Handicraft is also known as artisanic handicraft or artisanry. It is a particular kind of work where decorative and items to be used are made completely by hand without the use of machinery or modern technology. Simple tools are sometimes used, but never anything complex.

Handicraft is a traditional main sector of craft, and usually this particular term is associated with the traditional means of making any goods.

The individual craftsmanship of the items is incredibly important, given that these kinds of items usually have either some kind of cultural significance or religious significance. In modern market they offer a USP, too, which is the fact that they have not been made through mass production and are completely unique.

  • What's the difference between this and arts and crafts?
Typically, the difference between handicraft and arts and crafts is that arts and crafts is really a matter on intent. Items made through handicraft are created to be shown off, to be used or to be worn, and they usually have a purpose that goes beyond being simple decorative items.

Goods made through handicraft are generally more traditional, too. In traditional non-industrial societies and countries, handicraft is an essential part of every day life, as opposed to working in factories in other societies across the world. Arts and craft generally implies that there is more of a hobby pursuit to be able to demonstrate a creative technique, whereas handicraft is essential and cultural - it can, however, become a hobby with some people and that's when it begins to look like arts and crafts. Do remember that there is a distinct difference, however.
