Crafting is one of the most essential activities Palia players can perform and create various Furnishings, tools, and crafters. The latter are crafting equipment or stations that will aid players in producing multiple items, including food, ores, and seeds, and repairing tools before they wear down.
However, placing a crafter isn’t as simple as players will learn. They require a Crafting License before it’s set anywhere on their Housing plot. So, how one acquires this is detailed in this guide on how to get and use the Crafting License in Palia.
How To Get The Crafting License In Palia?
As players progress with their adventures in Kilima Village and Bahari Bay, they will eventually level up their Skills when doing quests and tasks to earn XP. This will make multiple crafters, which are stations that allow players to craft items using blueprints acquired and can be placed in a designated space in their home or on their Housing plot.
By default, players can place a maximum of five crafters in their home or on their Housing plot, which can be increased by obtaining a Crafting Licence. According to its in-game description, this documentation “increases the number of crafters you can place by one” crafter, so if players wish to have a fully functional workshop, they’ll need to obtain more licenses to add more crafters on the premises.
Players looking to get a Crafting License can head to the City Hall at the town square of Kilima Village and visit the cash register on the counter in front of Kenyatta. Their first Crafting License will cost 500 Gold, which the cost increases by 250 Gold for the first five licenses purchased.
The following five licenses will cost 500 Gold more, with the eight licenses acquired before increasing by 1,000 Gold up until the 11th license purchased. It will cost 1,500 Gold more from the 12th until the 15th license is obtained and 2,000 Gold more until players have maxed the Crafter Budget or the number of crafters placed.
How To Use The Crafting Licence In Palia?
Using the Crafting License is pretty straightforward as it will immediately be used once purchased at City Hall. After acquiring a Crafting License, players can return to their Housing plot and place a built crafter in their home or on their plot, but if they have yet to craft one, visit the Worktable to craft it with the right resources.
Currently, there are 19 items that are classified as crafters and are categorized under the relevant Skill it’s associated with. These are all the confirmed crafters presently available to own in Palia:
- Basic Sawmill
- Basic Smelter
- Fabric Loom
- Glass Furnace
- Glow Worm Farm
- Heavy Sawmill
- Heavy Smelter
- Mixing Station
- Modification Bench

This includes the Worktable that players will have at the start of the Welcome to Palia quest, but it can also be purchased from Sifuu’s Forge in Kilima Village for 200 Gold each. Once players have purchased the maximum amount of Crafting Licences, which is 25 licenses, the number of crafters placed on their Housing plot will total 30 crafters per plot.
