PBS Documentary 'Urban Forge: Ozark Artistry' features Urban Forge Artisans and Handmade Treasures
Catch a glimpse into the daily life of our artisans and staff, the history behind our craft, and the creative work that happens behind the scenes in a new documentary produced by Arkansas PBS!
Arkansas PBS goes behind the scenes and illuminates their craft in the original one-hour documentary “Urban Forge: Ozark Artistry”!
“Arkansas stories are our passion,” Arkansas PBS CEO Courtney Pledger said. “We seek out the rich history and traditions of our great state, like that of Urban Forge, and tell the human stories at the center of that history and tradition.
“Our film reflects the strong bonds created in the forge that make the artisans of Urban Forge a family, ensuring their craftsmanship and traditions will continue long into the future. Discover these Arkansas artists and the beauty in their ancient trade.”
During the program premiere, viewers will have the opportunity to make a donation to Arkansas PBS to receive hand-forged items including a leaf keychain, wall hooks, a mug stand and mugs, hot dog cooker, fire poker and brook, or a double wood ring set.
