Types of Crafting
Crafting BDSM specific items often draws from several different skill sets such as:
- Sewing and Weaving
- Copper and Brass Smithing
Consider reviewing some free resources on these subjects here.
Reasons for doing so usually include one or more of the following:
- Economy Making one's own toys can often be less monetarily expensive than purchasing a product from a merchant.
- Customization Many crafters prefer to have special materials or other customizations that will personalize an item for the user.
- Spiritual Many who utilize Spiritualism as part of their BDSM practices will wish to imbue their items with a bit of personal touch or energy.
“A man who works with his hands is a laborer; a man who works with his hands and his brain is a craftsman; but a man who works with his hands and his brain and his heart is an artist.” ~Louis Nizer
