Asheville, NC – The Center for Craft, Creativity & Design (CCCD) is pleased to announce the sneak preview of the newest episode, Industry: Handmade in the Creative Economy, from the award winning series Craft in America. The screening will be followed by a discussion with the owners, artists, and technicians from local featured textile industry, The Oriole Mill.

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.

Industry features San Francisco quilter Joe Cunningham visiting Lucy Mingo and Mary Ann Pettway in Gee’s Bend, Alabama, boat builder Graham McKay of Lowell’s Boat Shop in Amesbury, Massachusetts, artist Bethanne Knudson of The Oriole Mill in Hendersonville, North Carolina, and Brooklyn, New York Etsy artist Shane Yamane.

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, the mill’s co-founders Stephan Michelson and Bethanne Knudson are 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.
