WEAVING, FOR BEREA COLLEGE CRAFTS

 
 
 

Hand made goods produced entirely by the students of Berea College, stand the test of time and they are crafted to be utilized in every day use (though they can represent a piece of art as well, worthy of hanging on the wall for admiration).  This is part of a ten piece film series highlighting the craft masters & students of the craft labor departments. These are the people behind the product, striving to continue the tradition and quality of Berea College Crafts. Amy, the weaving manager, studied at the college - now oversees a tight community of student workers. Plan on a tour of the workshop? Anticipate being rattled by the sound of booms and bangs from working looms.

WEEKEND SUMMARY, FOR THE MOONSHINERS BALL

I read an article not long ago about the top picks of music festivals in the country, I feel confident that the Moonshiners Ball will be finding a place on those lists sooner than later. Curated by the Blind Corn Liquor Pickers, this festival boasts three days of music artistry - bands from small town Appalachia and names you're already hearing on the radio. This is a highlight cut of the festival. One camera, a rain jacket, and muddy feet. Filmed at Homegrown Hideaways in Berea, Ky.
