Handmade Nation

In the world of crafters, artists and designers, there has never been such an anticipated indie documentary. The Stitches & Craft Show is presenting the exclusive Australian Premiere of Handmade Nation.

Handmade Nation documents a movement of artists, crafters and designers who work with traditional and contemporary techniques. Faythe Levine is a pillar of the do-it-yourself movement and the passionate creative behind Handmade Nation, the book and now the film.

Faythe travelled 19,000 miles throughout the USA to document what has emerged as a marriage between historical technique, punk culture and the D.I.Y ethos. This film reflects the new economy and lifestyle based on creativity, determination and networking.

Faythe will be in attendance at the Melbourne show to talk about how she captured the essence of our globally tight-knit crafting community so go and say hi!

Wednesday 11th - Saturday 14th - Screenings at 6:30pm and 8:00pm at the Stitches and Craft Show. Cost is $10 for movie.
