Crafting is a very diverse production skill in RuneScape Classic. Crafting consists of leather working, pottery making, crafting jewellery, spinning, crafting glass, and crafting battlestaves. At level 40, players may enter the Crafting Guild .


The crafting skill requires many tools that must be kept in the inventory whilst crafting. All of the tools except the glassblowing pipe can be purchased in the Dommik's Crafting Store at the east side of Al Kharid or in the Rommik's Crafty Supplies at Rimmington. The glassblowing pipe can be found in a building on Entrana or Hemenster.

Leather WorkingEdit

Leather working is a great way to start crafting, however it does require a small amount of cash to start out. In order to make leather, players need cowhides, a needle, multiple thread and some coins.

Leather GlovesLeather Gloves113.75
Leather ArmourLeather Armour1425

Steps for making leather:

  1. Obtain a cowhide from killing a cow. Cows can be found in Lumbridge.
  2. With a cowhide and coins in your inventory, speak to the Tanner in Al Kharid to tan your cowhide. The cost is 1 coin per cowhide.
  3. With a needle and thread in your inventory (Crafting supplies shop in Al Kharid), use the needle on the leather.


Making pottery is a great way to start crafting. Players will need to use a pottery wheel and pottery oven in order to make pottery.

Image Name Level Experience (unfired) Total Experience*
Pot Pot 1 6.25 12.5
Pie dish Pie dish 4 15 25
Bowl Bowl 7 10 25

Steps for making pottery:

  1. Obtain some clay by mining a clay rock.
  2. Obtain a bucket from buying one at any general store and fill it up by using it with a water source.
  3. Use the bucket of water with the clay to make soft clay.
  4. Use the soft clay with a pottery wheel and receive an unfired piece of pottery. A pottery wheel is found in Barbarian Village.
  5. Use the unfired piece of pottery with a pottery oven. A pottery oven is found right next to the pottery wheel.

* At lower levels players may fail to fire the piece of pottery


Cutting gems requires the player to use a chisel on an uncut gem.

Shilo Village gemsEdit

There are also three types of gems that can be mined from gem rocks in Shilo Village. These gems can be cut for Crafting experience. However, with these you can fail this task, leaving only a Crushed Gemstone.

Uncut Opal Opal Opal 10 15 3.75
Uncut Jade Jade Jade 13 20 5
Uncut Red Topaz Red Topaz Red topaz 16 25 6.25


Jewellery is a major part of the crafting skill where players can create jewellery to wear. Each form of jewellery requires a mould, a gold bar and a gem for the type of jewellery the player wishes to create. Once a player has these materials in their inventory, using a gold bar on a furnace will allow the player to craft the jewellery. Furnaces can be found in Lumbridge, Falador, Ardougne, Al Kharid, and Lost City.

After a player has crafted an amulet from a furnace, they must complete the amulet by attaching a string to it by using a ball of wool on the amulet. This does not grant additional experience.

Rings and necklaces are relatively useless in RuneScape Classic as they cannot be enchanted through magic spells. Only the amulets can be enchanted by casting the correct enchantment spell on a fully completed amulet. See magic for more details on enchantment spells.

Spinning is done on spinning wheels found throughout RuneScape Classic. Spinning wheels can be found next to the Falador east bank, upstairs in a building south west of Seers' Village bank, in the small building closest to Varrock in Barbarian Village, and upstairs in Lumbridge Castle. To spin wool or flax, simply use the item on the spinning wheel.
