Besides going to the movies or binging on Netflix, spend your weekend acquiring a new hobby! These craft kits for adults are designed to let you pick up a new skill at your own time and pace.

Craft kits are a great way to explore a new hobby without having to leave the comfort of your home. They are also an affordable option as you won’t overspend on materials that are not necessary. Everything in the craft kit is proportioned according to what is needed to complete the project.

Knitting Kits

Fashionistas, make your own bags, beanies, and cardigans to complete that killer outfit. Knitting has certainly made a comeback in recent years. With ethical fashion on the rise, people are more conscious of the dressmaking process and beginning to appreciate the disappearing art of sewing and knitting by hand.

Knitting also can be done whenever and wherever. Do it before bed, on your commute, or during the weekend. It’s not an activity that has to be done within the limits of time.

Purchase a knit kit from It Takes Balls and take your time to create something from scratch. Prices start at $58 and increase according to the type and amount of materials required. Should you need help with a particular section, their knit kits also allow free and unlimited access to knitting lessons conducted at their studio.

Beer Brewing Kits

Currently a niche hobby in Singapore, beer brewing is only slowly gaining traction. Many of us still prefer the convenience of going to a bar or brewery. But if you’re game, try brewing your own beer with a microbrew kit from ibrew at $175 or a homebrew starter kit from Homebrew Co-Op from $150.

While the first few attempts may turn out less than desirable, beer making enthusiasts are hooked because they get to experiment with taste and flavours. As the quality of a homemade brew improves over time, brewing your own beers gives you the opportunity to create your own special beer variety that is also free of additives and preservatives.
