* squeal *
We literally signed the contract and confirmed the flight before the first email came in asking...
"Is it true?"
Andrea: "What? How do you know already?"
Yes, it is true. Lotus Events and Got Craft? is proud to present the Vancouver premier of Handmade Nation.
insert (squeal / screaming / excited noise) here. Woot!
Faythe Levine will be live and in person on July 9th to introduce the film and do a Q & A session after the screening. Want to attend? Stay tuned for more details!
What is Handmade Nation?
Handmade Nation documents a movement of artists, crafters and designers that recognize a marriage between historical techniques, punk and DIY (do it yourself) ethos while being influenced by traditional handiwork, modern aesthetics, politics, feminism and art. Fueled by the common thread of creating, Handmade Nation explores a burgeoning art community that is based on creativity, determination and networking.
In 2006, first time director Faythe Levine traveled to 15 cities, interviewing 80 individuals. Levine captured the virtually tight-knit community that exists through websites, blogs and online stores and connects to the greater public through independent boutiques, galleries and craft fairs.
