In 2006, Faythe Levine traveled the country, putting 19,000 miles under her belt and visiting 15 cities to document the new wave of craft in the USA. Faythe has encapsulated this particular chapter in craft history with the documentary Handmade Nation, and an accompanying book of the same name.
Thursday, July 9th marks the Vancouver premiere of the film at the RIo Theatre. Vancouver is only one of two stops in Canada scheduled for Handmade Nation and the only one to have Faythe Levine attend in person.
Handmade Nation will also include a craft showcase featuring 14 local handmade artists. Photobooth Vancouver will be set up for guests to 'show us your DIY' and take pictures with their handmade items. Faythe Levine will also be on-hand to introduce the film and hold a Q&A session following the screening.
