Deutsch: Handwerk / Français: Mêtier
A craft is a pastime or a profession that requires some particular kind of skilled work. In a historical sense, particularly as pertinent to the Middle Ages and earlier, the term is usually applied to people occupied in small-scale production of goods, or their maintenance, for example by tinkers. The traditional terms craftsman and craftswoman are nowadays often replaced by artisan and rarely by craftsperson (craftspeople).

In an industrial or manufacturing context, "craft" refers to a specific skill or trade that is used in the production or manufacture of products or materials. The term is often used to describe manual trades or manual labor that require a high degree of skill and precision, such as welding, metalworking, or woodworking. Here are a few examples of the use of "craft" in this context:

  1. Welding craft: The skill of joining or fusing metal pieces together using heat or pressure, used in construction, manufacturing, and repair work.

  2. Carpentry craft: The skill of working with wood, including cutting, shaping, and joining, used in construction, furniture making, and cabinetry.

  3. Glassblowing craft: The skill of blowing and shaping glass into various forms, used in the production of glass objects and products.

  4. Blacksmithing craft: The skill of working with metal, including forging, heating, and shaping, used in the production of metal objects and products.

  5. Ceramics craft: The skill of shaping and firing clay into various forms, used in the production of ceramic objects and products.

These are just a few examples of the use of "craft" in an industrial context, and there are many other types of manual trades and manual labor that are used in various industries and applications.
