Arts and crafts contain a variety of activities and hobbies that are related to making items with one s hands and skill. Handicraft or "traditional crafts" and some other crafts have been practised for centuries of crafts which were originally practised in a very small geographic area, such as Auckland, New Zealand. Most crafts require a mixture of skill, speed, and patience, but they can also be learnt on a more basic level by virtually every kid. Many community centres and schools run evening or day classes and workshops offering to teach basic craft skills in a short period of time. Many of these crafts become extremely popular for brief periods of time (a few months, or a few years), spreading rapidly among the crafting population as everyone emulates the first examples. "Arts and crafts" also refers to the Arts and Crafts Movement, a late 19th century design reform and social movement. Its proponents were encouraged by the ideals of William Morris and John Ruskin, who proposed that in pre-industrial societies, such as the European Middle Ages, people had achieved achievement through the creative process of handicrafts. This was held up in contrast to what was perceived to be the alienating effects of manufacturing labour.Many art and craft activities were professions under the guild system. Young people were apprenticed to a master-craftsman, and they refined their skills over a period of years in exchange for low wages. By the time their training was complete, they were well-equipped to set up in trade for themselves, earning their living with the skill that could be traded within the community, often for goods and services. The Industrial Revolution and the increasing mechanisation of production processes gradually reduced or eliminated many of the roles professional craftspeople played, and today crafts are most commonly seen as a form of hobby or art.The term craft also refers to the products of artistic production or creation that require a high degree of technical knowledge, specialized equipment and facilities to produce, involve manual labour or materials with histories that exceed the boundaries of western art history, such as glass, ceramics, textiles, metal and wood. Some audience may perceive crafted objects as art objects when these objects are viewed within an art context, such as in a museums or in art galleries.
