The article offers a brief fieldwork reflection on the role of craft as a means of dealing with uncertainty. It focuses on two women’s urban craft groups, suggesting that participation in craft activity is often a product, not so much of a particular passion for specific craft as of the engagement, rhythm and sociality through materiality, practice and skill. The article reflects on the potential of craft activity, demonstrating how participation enables an adoption of a different perspective, and dwelling in craft. For the participants, craft making could be considered as one of the complex ways of weaving pathways into the uncertain environment in which they operate.
