Put your hobby to good use and freshen up your interior
Fresh out of quarantine and looking for a new hobby for summertime? Clay making is a great stress reliever that comes with a sense of satisfaction that one gains from making a beautiful piece that was once merely a ball of clay. It’s also a great way to create unique pieces to place around your home. When renting out a property one may find that personalising the space may be difficult due to restrictions brought on by landlords, clay pieces are a great way to spice up your interior design as they are not only totally personalisable but also transportable, allowing you to cherish and travel with along your journey wherever you are in the world.
Why not combine a newfound hobby with your interior design needs?
You would be surprised as to how many kitchen utilities one can make from clay. When renting out a property one would usually prefer to avoid purchasing kitchen appliances due to how expensive they are. If you spend a lot of time in the kitchen and love to entertain, adding that extra touch by also creating the dish you’re serving your food in. Imagine the satisfaction it would bring to not only serve your guests your food but also add that extra distinctive feature to the experience. Why not start off by creating a beautiful set of serving bowls or plates and if you’re more on the advanced side why not try out a teapot and teacup set with matching spoons and make it the full Alice in Wonderland experience.
After spending a substantial amount of time inside your rental property during quarantine you may have started to realise annoyances that maybe weren’t there before such as, the lack of colour around your flat or the lack of boldness. These two factors may be easily solved with a uniquely shaped, vibrantly coloured vase to house your healthy and thriving indoor plants.
If you’re a fragrance person that prefers their apartment to resemble the inside of a Yankie Candle warehouse why not try out a candlestick holder making it not only smell great but look great too!
If you're renting out a property with outdoor space it's the perfect excuse to play around with some pots! Having an outdoor space can be so much fun to decorate with clay pieces. Aside from making pots for your herbs and plants, one can catch the eye of onlookers by also adding clay tags to their plants as identifiers. These are a great starting point for anyone just starting out and wishing to create something that is useful for them without having to spend hours in the making.
Clay making can be an expensive hobby if your intention is to base it out of your home, though there are plenty of options for people who are still beginners and need a starting place with someone guiding them. Space for clay is a great studio located in the heart of Malta offering a place for you to let out your inner creative and wind down in an open and trusting space. https://www.facebook.com/Space-for-Clay-284364778284119
One thing that you can look forward to if you decide to take on this challenge and bring your creativity to life and into your home are the special comments on your beautifully made pieces as someone may ask ‘where did you buy these from?’ and you have the satisfaction of saying ‘I made it myself’.
