"The Craft in America Collection" is Boffo!

By Bill the Woodworker

Comments about PBS The Craft in America Collection DVD:

"Craft in America" is one of the best shows PBS has ever produced, and the "Collection" is a wonderful teaser. My only regret is that it doesn't have all the shows. Guess I'll just have to buy other disks.

As a craftsman myself, this show gives me hope that people in America will rediscover--or have already rediscovered--the value and beauty of things made by the hands, minds and hearts of craftspeople.

Finding the heart in art

By KoffeeKup

Comments about PBS The Craft in America Collection DVD:

If you want to find the beginning of an artist's trail, get this DVD collection. From basket weaving to iron tough structures produced over generations are the stories told by the artists as they demonstrate their crafts and relate their histories to the present. Discover how and why successful professionals turned their backs on their big business worlds in favor of starting or continuing family businesses that produce extraordinary objects. Or, listen to those who raised themselves from obscure, humble beginnings as they carried on the crafting of essential service vessels made of grasses and bark. It may help you find a trail to your own heartful expressions.
