I NEED to throw myself into learning and mastering an art. Ultimately I would love to be able to sell some at our local farmers market.

I am not necessarily skilled in one form of art, so I would be starting mostly from the beginning. I am willing to spend some money to set up shop. Do you have any experience or advice about my options or can you add some ideas to my list.

  • pottery (dishes)
  • glass blowing
  • glass beads
  • wire jewelry or home decor


I can make some simple crochet and knitting projects, but its "not my thing". I do have a sewing machine, but I can't really think of anything unique to make with it.

I vote stained glass too.  I love stained glass windows!  I should learn how to do it myself.
