Default PBS: A Craftman's Legacy

This episode of the show, titled the Weave Master, is fantastic. For anyone who wants to learn about weaving, this is great place to start.

I enjoy the show because each episode showcases artisans doing work that they love. The subject is often about a dying or lost art so it's good to know that some of these crafts won't be permanently lost.

I think some episodes can be watched on demand at the website, or possibly your local PBS site.

Saw season 1, ep 1 yesterday. It was great.

Needs to be 1hr to show more details how they make things.
