The recent movement of crafters or "makers", people with hands-on experience with practical arts, has many manifestations in Ames. We visit with Kristin Roach, founder of Ames Collaborative Art, or Ames c.Art, a grassroots organization that gets artists and non-artists working together on public art, and Amanda Feeley, a woman who began her own natural perfume business after her life was rocked by crisis. Ames C.Art, Esscentual Alchemy (www.esscentualalchemy.org).
Hosts Greta Anderson and Sarah Heglund.
