Craft in America: Industry explores the business of the handmade, taking us to workshops where artists are crafting the future and making contributions to the local and national economies. INDUSTRY highlights the important connection between the consumer and the maker and explores the value of exquisitely crafted handmade objects in today's creative economy.
In this yet to be aired episode, INDUSTRY takes us to Gee's Bend AL, Ammesbury MA, Brooklyn NY, and locally to the Oriole Mill.
At The Oriole Mill in Hendersonville, North Carolina, American textile manufacturing is thriving once again. Deep in an area of the South, once the heart of textile manufacturing, artist Bethanne Knudson is proving, through creativity, expertise and sheer determination, that an industry can revive itself. Knudson is one of the many Western North Carolina artists who have restarted the economy of Asheville through their creative endeavors and made it an arts destination.
