For the new PBS Series: "Craft in America: Memory, Landscape, Community," scheduled to air tomorrow, May 30th. Divided into three hourlong sections, it's described as a 'journey to the origins, artists and techniques of American crafts." You can see a short preview here. One of the artists featured is the African American basket weaver Mary Jackson, who can be seen briefly in the promotional video for the series, weaving a sweetgrass basket, similar to the one above.
I'll be watching, and recording--as I make my final preparations for Capital Jazz Fest. Enjoy!
