Last year MyntKat did an excellent work putting together an Artisan Crafts ABC for projecteducate, however the Artisan Crafts are so extensive, diverse and ever-growing that there's still much to cover. In this new Artisan Crafts Week we will explore some different crafts, techniques, materials and popular themes to expand your knowledge of this addictive world. This list is still not complete, and we invite you to share with us your knowledge.

W stands for Washi

Washi is a kind of paper produced in Japan usually by hand with traditional methods and fewer chemicals, giving it a characteristic crispier and tougher feel; most of the times it's painted and gilded and then sold as tape or sheets of paper. Washi can be used for origami, to decorate objects, and more.

X stands for Xerophyte

Xerophytes are plants that have adapted to live with a very scarce supply of water in environments such as  deserts, for example succulents and cactus. The are great for terrariums because they are resistant and need little care, but some people also like to do crafts about them.

Y stands for Yen

Yen is the currency of Japan, some of their coins have unusual shapes and beautiful designs so they're are used for jewelry. ichthysofpetfish adds "The 5 yen coin is often used because "goen" (5 yen) is a homophone with "goen" (good luck). Extrapolate this to gojyuen - a 50 yen coin may be symbolic of even more luck. The holes also have some symbolic significance, in addition to being nifty."
