2012/13 KETKY Program Schedule

Pioneer families made baskets, fishing nets, quilts, brooms, and furniture by hand, from whatever materials were available, because they had to. Today, these same items are mass-produced and readily available, but the hand-made versions persist for very different reasons. This 1993 KET documentary visits members of five Western Kentucky families to discover how they are preserving the tradition of hand-crafting these household items—and why they believe it is important to maintain this link to the past.

These videos are also available on KET EncycloMedia.

The schedule listed here includes only airings on the KETKY channel. See the complete Crafting Tradition broadcast schedule for airings on all KET channels.
