Craft in AmericaCraft in America
PBS, 2009 Running | Documentary, Mini-Series
Rating: 3/5

We have a deep sense of longing for the handmade. Perhaps because each of us, in our own way, has had a craft experience. Sometimes it's an object passed down to us, or one that crosses our path, and connects us to others in traditions, heritage, and rituals. Craft is all around us. You'll find it wherever you look - hiding in plain sight. Craft in America offers you a place to explore these connections and to inspire your own creativity. Join us on this voyage of discovery. Craft in America explores the vitality, history and significance of the craft movement in the United States and its impact on our nation's rich cultural heritage. Capturing the beauty, creativity and originality of craftsmanship, the film highlights artists and explores the inter-relationship of what they do, how they do it and why they have chosen a life of creating art.
