Spinning

Spinning is the process of turning raw materials such as Wool into Ball of Wool, or Flax into Bow Strings, by using a Spinning Wheel. A popular and convenient Spinning Wheel is located below the bank in Lumbridge Castle.

Weaving

Weaving is a similar process to Spinning, taking various raw materials and making a finished, usable product. Instead of a spinning wheel, Weaving uses a loom to process the materials.

Pottery

Pottery is the art of turning soft clay into various objects using a pottery wheel, followed by using the shaped clay with a pottery oven. Soft clay is obtained by mining clay, then using it with an object containing water, such as a bucket of water or jug of water.

Armour

Leather

A player crafts leather into a piece of leather armour.

To begin leather crafting, players need a needle and thread, normally purchased from the Al-Kharid or Rimmington craft shop, and some cowhide tanned into leather. In the free-to-play world, this means visiting the tanner in Al-Kharid until players are able to enter the guild. Tanning costs 1 gp per ordinary leather, 3 coins for hard leather, and 20 coins for dragonhide. There is also a more expensive tannery available to members in Canifis.

The cattle field east of Lumbridge is a convenient spot for leather crafters and is easy to get to, but it is normally largely populated. Another convenient location to obtain cowhide in a free-to-play world is to the west of the Crafting Guild, where there are many more cows together in a smaller place, allowing faster kills. For members, there is a field of cows north of Ardougne and west of the Legends' Guild, which is fairly close to a bank and very rarely occupied by players.

Note: 1 thread makes 4 pieces of leather armour.

Studded leather items are made by smithing steel studs (level 36) and adding them to the completed leather item.

Dragonhides

This members-only part of the crafting skill is extremely similar to normal leather crafting, except that:

  • 20 coins are paid to tan one piece of hide.
  • Only vambraces, chaps, and bodies can be made.
  • High Alchemy is quite preferred to be cast on dragonhide bodies or vambraces rather than chaps, for their difference in coins received.
  • Obtaining dragonhides is slow but profitable.
  • Buying dragonhides is faster, though price is far higher than the high-alchemy value.
  • Players may attach kebbit claws to any vambraces to make spiked vambraces, giving +2 Strength bonus and 6 Crafting experience.

Snakeskin

Snakeskins are found by killing Bush snakes on the island of Mos Le'Harmless, or on Karamja during the Tai Bwo Wannai Cleanup activity and during the Temple Trekking activity. They can be tanned for 20 coins each, and then crafted using a needle and thread.

A member can make snakeskins into items of snakeskin armour, as shown on the table below, if they have a needle and thread.

Swamp snakes can also be killed during Temple Trekking to obtain snake hide for crafting the armour.

Snakeskins are also used to make tribal masks into Broodoo shields. Broodoo Shields can be created with 35 Crafting by right-clicking on a tribal mask and selecting make-shield opton with two snakeskins and eight nails in your inventory. This grants 100 Crafting experience. The colour of the tribal mask from which it was made determines the colour of the shield. A Broodoo shield requires 25 Defence to wear.

Yak hide

After starting The Fremennik Isles quest, members can kill Yaks to obtain Yak-hides and make them into Fremennik armour pieces. The Yak hides need to be cured for 5 coins to become craftable. It is not advised to make bodies for experience, because it costs an extra hide for the same return.

Snelms

In the Mort Myre swamp, there are snails that drop shells when killed. Using a chisel with these shells will create snelms. Each snelm made gives 32.5 experience. Snelms come in two varieties - pointed and rounded.

Crab Armour

After beginning the portion of Recipe for Disaster quest to free Pirate Pete, players can craft crab armour. The materials are dropped by the giant crabs encountered during the quest. They can be crafted using a chisel.

Glass

Glass is a members-only part of the crafting skill. The following will be required:

With all of the ingredients in the inventory, use a bucket of sand and soda ash in a furnace to create molten glass.

Note: The lunar spell Superglass Make also can be used to convert soda ashes/seaweeds and buckets of sand into molten glass. Buckets will NOT be returned, as the spell destroys them completely. Using this spell yields 10 Crafting experience for each molten glass created, rather than the 20 normally obtained by using a furnace. However, this will also make between one and ten extra molten glass.

Use the glassblowing pipe with the molten glass to blow various items.

Locations

Entrana is a perfect place to blow glass, as it has respawns for glassblowing pipe and seaweed and has a sandpit, range and furnace. Dorgesh-Kaan also has a sandpit next to a furnace. Molanisks, which can be found just south of the city, drop swamp weed, a suitable substitute for seaweed. There is also a range just to the east of the furnace, making Dorgesh-Kaan an effective place to blow glass. For further crafting experience one can add a cave goblin wire to a light orb. Copper wire is thieved from a machine next to the furnace in Dorgesh-Kaan (level 44 thieving required and 22 Thieving experience gained). Adding the wire gives 104 crafting experience (level 87 Crafting required).

For those who already have their raw materials in the bank, Neitiznot has both a clay oven (for burning seaweed) and a clay forge for glassmaking within one click of a bank chest. Note that Neitiznot is only accessible to those who have completed The Fremennik Trials. Other suitable locations to glassblow include Falador and Al Kharid both of which have banks, ranges and furnaces in close proximity to each other.

Stills and oil lamps

In order to fill oil lamps with lamp oil, use a piece of swamp tar on a lamp oil still with an empty oil lamp in the inventory. There are 2 stills in RuneScape: the scientists house in Rimmington and the lamp stall in Dorgesh-Kaan. The Apothecary in Varrock can also turn the Swamp Tar into oil for lamps.
