Some folks have been asking about the difference between arts and crafts.
This is a notoriously difficult and contentious problem. But, a very good
discussion of the matter can be found in R.G. Collingwood's book THE
PHILOSOPHY OF ART. Collingwood's view is controversial, but it will give
you a nice philosophical starting point for thinking about the
distinction.
