Learn to knit, make your own jewellery and create fantastic projects out of paper and recycled materials. Following on from the successful Art Smart series, Craft Smart presents a fresh, fun approach to four creative skills: knitting, jewellery-making, papercrafting and crafting with recycled objects. Each book contains 12 original projects to make, using a range of readily available materials. There are projects for boys and girls, carefully chosen to appeal to readers of all abilities. Each project is graded with a difficulty rating of 1 to 5. A special 'techniques and materials' section encourages young crafters to try out their own ideas while learning valuable practical skills.
