HOW ARE JAMAICAN CRAFTS MADE?
The end result will find its way on your wall, in a conference room and even in some case in a museum. The process of making simple material into a work of art is a gift Jamaican craft makers possess.
Many craftsmen starts the process by selecting a specific type of wood, whether cedar, mahogany, oak or mahoe. They normally have a wide variety of wood chisels which are all used during the carving process.
Once the concept is completed carved, then multiple grades of sandpaper is used to getting skin-like smooth. The craft is later polished or painted to get the desired look and feel of the artist / crafts-person.
Jamaican crafts are normally brought by tourist and locals alike as keepsakes. These memorabilia helps to preserve that specific memory of your Jamaican getaway or vacation. Crafts can be found at craft markets with man locations all over Jamaica and even at ports of entry.
