Need a Hobby?

A hobby is something that each and every one of us has and enjoys. For some, collecting postage stamps could be an enjoyable hobby, while for a few, it could be the idea of braving extreme weather conditions and snowboarding down icy mountain slopes. Whatever it may be, a hobby is something that one pursues for pleasure, for enjoyment, for leisure, and for an altogether different degree of happiness and satisfaction. There is a popular saying which goes, “Lucky are those who have time after work for pursuing their hobby, but luckiest are those for whom work itself is a hobby”. On that note, let us have a look at a comprehensive hobbies list, and one which will grow as the weeks go by and new companies are selected by our team to be featured.

Generally speaking, there are many different types of hobbies that we get to see around us. We come across women who enjoy knitting as a hobby, and at the same time we run into the occasional daredevils who engage themselves in some stunt biking as a hobby. Arts and crafts, sports, performing arts, culinary arts, social service, gardening, travelling, collecting souvenirs, etc, are a few things that come to mind when we think of the word ‘hobbies’. But is that it? Surely there must be a larger, longer and wider list of hobbies, ideas, and interests right? Yes, there certainly is. Let us have a look at it in the following sections of this article.

Arts and Crafts
A sure way to enhance your creative skills, any hobby related to arts and crafts is bound to help you reduce stress levels for adults and in case of children, they get the opportunity to improve their skills and showcase their talent. Most hobby stores have a range of options to woo their customers in style. For those interested in fabric paintings can choose from fabric paints that are packaged either in bottles or tubes to make things easier for people without any artistic skill. Glass craft is also popular with ready-made stencils available at any hobby shop. Trying paper craft would offer you novels ways to discover new things with the do-it-yourself kits. Most hobby shops have a lot of such kits that guide the novice to achieve great results.

Children can be pulled away from their television sets once they discover the world of fun and educative games and toys. Make sure you visit a hobby store that stocks educational games that compel your child to think. Jigsaw puzzles, Model kits, Science kits, Building blocks, Chinese checkers, Chess, Monopoly, Scrabble all help to build a child’s technique of applying his mind to think in different situations.

Collecting Items
Some people have a unique interest in gathering unusual items like stamps, coins, dolls, artifacts etc. Your local hobby store can be a perfect guide for you in this regard. You can browse through it and find products like a stamp book in varied designs that can help you guard your collection and display it, when your friends drop in for a visit.

Make Your Own Creations
You don’t really have to buy that pretty doll you saw at the shopping centre. There are great options available at hobby shops that can teach you how to make these items within the confines of your own home. Learn to make jewellery boxes, costumes, dolls, puppets, bags etc. Though it may sound complicated, you can get an array of books and even supplies and materials to help you make that cute lil’ dolly for your children.

We hope you enjoy the Herald & Advertisers guide to crafts and hobbies and if you have any suggestions of things you’d like us to add please e-mail: sales@colstonmedia.co.uk .

Hello from the team at Ippuku Tea House York!

We are an idependent business. We began October 2017 and have so far enjoyed every moment of feeding and entertaining York residents and visitors!

We started our company Ippuku Tea a few years ago. Selling tea that we buy directly from farmers in Japan. We wanted to share with everyone what we know about the real taste of Japanese Green Tea that we felt was not reflected in the UK market at the time.  This has grown into Ippuku Tea House as we wanted to continue sharing with everyone what we know and love about Japan

So if you’re looking for something unique and different in York please stop by our Japanese modern café and restaurant. Our food is all cooked from fresh and is homemade. Our style is everyday Japan, what you would have at friends, at home or in a local café.  We specialize in Japanese Tea but also have great coffee, original cocktails and weekly themed events.

TripAdvisor Review – “Un-MATCHA-ble!! Craving more!!This is one of those little places that you treasure and tell your nearest and dearest about, and you never quite work out how they manage to create such high quality stuff from a tiny kitchen. This is real, delicious Japanese food and drink, in a friendly little setting with a lovely courtyard space out back, run by a passionate young husband and wife duo combining Yorkshire and Japan….”

We recommend you to try our best seller so far, which is the ‘matcha latte’ served hot or iced this rich tea drink is outstanding and a must try for tea lovers!

We hope you will enjoy exploring our menu and chatting with our lovely staff.

Hope to see you soon!
