Nestled in the Blue Ridge Mountains of Floyd, Virginia, there is an enclave of craftsmen who, over the past 25 years, have solidified deep friendships as well as a network of creative, technical and professional support. Drawn to the area by its beauty and tranquility, with much determination, they established working studios, vital careers and a way of life. Two Generations, Working Together features work by 16 Hands members Ellen Shankin, Brad Warstler, Silvie Granatelli, Benjie Osborne, Josh Manning, Donna Polseno, Hona Knudsen, Wendy Werstlein, Sarah McCarthy, Seth Guzovsky, Andrea Denniston and Josh Copus.
