Craft in America Screening & Discussion Series
From September to November this fall, the library will be hosting screening of the PBS documentary series Craft in America followed by an optional discussion. Attendees are welcome to bring a bagged lunch, and the library will provide drinks and a dessert at each screening.
Tuesday, September 20th @ 11:30 AM: The September screening is “Community.” Community carries with it many meanings in the world of craft, including the social traditions passed down from generation to generation and a community of people, bound together on a project, helping one another.
Tuesday, October 18th @ 11:30 AM: The October screening is “Origins.” The American craft tradition didn’t appear fully formed and mature. Where have our practices come from? How are they passed down?
Tuesday, November 29th @ 11:30 AM: The November screening is “Holiday.” Embrace traditions both old and new–all part of our American experience with the handmade, featuring handmade menorahs, hand-blown glass ornaments, hand-carved totems, and a national gingerbread competition.
Each program is an hour long, and the optional discussion that will follow each screening will run from 12:30-1:00 PM. These screenings are free and open to the public.
