HANDMADE NATION with Faythe Levine!


Friday, February 12, 2010

7:00pm - 9:00pm



We are proud to announce that we will be doing a screening of Handmade Nation, a documentary about DIY culture in America.

Faythe Levine traveled 19,000 miles to document what has emerged as a marriage between historical technique, punk culture, and the d.i.y. ethos. For HANDMADE NATION she and Cortney Heimerl have selected 24 makers and 5 essayists who work within different media and have different methodologies to provide a microcosm of the crafting community. Participants in this community share ideas and encouragement through websites, blogs, boutiques, galleries, and craft fairs. Together they have forged a new
economy and lifestyle based on creativity, determination, and networking.
twenty-four artists from Olympia, Washington to Providence, Rhode Island, and everywhere in between show their work and discuss their lives.

The screening will be held on February 12th at 7pm, followed by a talk with director Faythe Levine. Admission is a sliding scale of $7-$10 at the door.
