2023 Craft trends
Craft trends have been rapidly shifting in the past few years, and that trend is expected to continue. As materials become more accessible and techniques more widespread, there are increasingly diverse forms of crafting becoming popular around the world. We are likely to see an explosion in creativity, with mixed media pieces, intricate hand-crafted items, and unusual DIY projects becoming commonplace by 2023. Craft trends have been taking the crafting world by storm, as do-it-yourselfers of all ages and abilities join in on the trend. Crafts like silver clay jewellery making have become increasingly popular, along with making felt figures, macrame and paper crafts as well as making personalised decorated items to add that extra special touch. Hand-made cards, clothing and wall art have also seen a rise in popularity amongst those looking to get creative, whilst more traditional needlecrafts such as knitting, embroidery and crochet are becoming more modernised with increasingly trendy patterns, slogans and colours entering the mainstream. Looking ahead to 2023, we expect to see craft trends take a twist towards being green – upcycling materials such as fabric scraps into fashionable items is likely to be all the rage. We could also see an increase in sustainability awareness when it comes to crafts, with people using natural materials and yarn etc that won’t harm their natural environment or local ecosystems. Purpose-led Crafts will continue to be part of our lives for many years to come - perhaps even more so if current trends are anything to go by!
