PBS Arts from the Blue Ridge Mountains: Hand Made

Out of both necessity and ingenuity, the handcrafting of tools and household items helped sustain the people and the culture of the remote Blue Ridge Mountains for centuries. Today these crafts continue in both their most traditional forms and in bold interpretations that veer toward contemporary art. This film from PBS member station UNC-TV explores the work of four Blue Ridge Mountain artists.
