Arts and Crafts?

The thing I can’t wrap my head around is why is the term Arts and Crafts used together. Why not just say Arts since the things that you Craft are also considered an art. For example sculpting, you are crafting the whole sculpture and it’s classified as Art. I found online a link speculating the differences but I’m still not convinced they should be used as a single term. Any thoughts on this topic?

Haha good one.
Definitely art and craft are two different terms.
They are not synonyms.
Still, people use them in conjunction.
We are used to sentences like
“What a piece of art”
“The craft was so good”
“There is an art and craft show going on.”

So still they’re used as single words but people tend to use them together.
Thanks a lot for clearing this up for me. :slight_smile:
