There is a series on PBS right now called Craft in America.
It is really great and would encourage anyone to try and catch an episode or two, or watch them online.
I think people sometimes associate the word "craft" with hobbies that can be easily picked up at a local chain store. This is absolutely not true. I have found myself waking up to what this world really is, and finding that I am slowly moving straight towards it. It is about making something handmade, unique, inspirational, but also useful. Pottery, printing, textiles, building instruments, making baskets, furniture making...it is all around us. It is worth taking a second look and really understanding the importance of this in our world today.
