Crafting is the skill of making items from clay, gold, silver, and gems. You can make a variety of items, from clay pots to gold amulets.
To make pots/pie dishes: Get some clay from the mine, and some water in a jug or bucket. Use the clay with the water to make it soft, then use the soft clay on a potter's wheel (there's one at the Barbarian Village). Once you've formed the pot or pie dish, put it in a kiln to bake.
To make gold items: Get gold from a mine, and smelt it to make a bar. Buy a mold (ring, necklace, or amulet) from the Craft Shop in Rimmington. Put the gold bar in the furnace again. It will ask what item you wish to make, and whether you wish to put a gem in it.
To put a string on an amulet: Get some wool from a sheep. Spin the wool into a ball, then use the ball with the amulet. This works the same with Holy Symbols of Saradomin.
To cut gems: Get a gem from the mine, or from a monster. All rocks that give ore, and monsters that drop treasure have a 1/282 chance to drop gems. Use a chisel with the gem to cut it.
To make leather items (gloves, boots, armor): Kill a cow to get Cow Hide. Take the Hide to the tanner's in Al Kharid to get Leather. Use a Needle and Thread with the leather to make the item of your choice. You can now use the same spool of thread for 5 leather items.
To make Capes: Go to Aggie (In Draynor Village) with Dye ingredients (see bottom of page). Use dye with cape.

Ok, here is your friendly neighborhood cape and dye table. Oh yeah, any cape is dyeable to any color. Each new cape gives +2 Armor.
||Red dye, mix with Yellow dye, apply to cape(3XP)|
||Yellow dye (obviously) apply to cape(3XP)|
||Yellow dye, mix with Blue dye, apply to cape(2XP)|
||Red dye, mix with Blue dye, apply to cape(3XP)|
||Blue dye, apply to cape(3XP)|
||Red dye, apply to cape(2XP)|
For Red, all you need is 3 red berries(they spawn around the Varrock mine, NOT champions guild mine). Take them to Aggie, the witch of Draynor Village. Its not hard to find her, there is (now) always a large crowd around her. To make any dye, you need to pay her 5gp.
Blue dye is the most expensive dye, and the (as most people tell me) hardest to find. To get blue dye, you need 2 woad leaves(they are stackable) from Wyson, the Gardener of Falador Park. He will ask you for a fair price. You can give hime 15gp, and get a leaf, or offer him 20gp, and he will give you two leaves. Offering 5 or 10gp will get you nothing. Take them to Aggie the witch of Draynor Village.(see RED DYE)
For yellow dye, you need 2 onions(the only places I know of that they spawn is right above Rimmington, next to the Dragon Quest maze, and behind Fred the Farmers house, near the windmill). Just take them to Aggie,(of Draynor Village) along with 5gp.(See RED DYE)
