Obligatory shoe-gazing photo... but they are very nice!

Went to a screening of Handmade Nation by Faythe Levine last night at the DCA in Dundee which was fun!  Dundee was only one of two locations screening the film in the UK which was a big surprise when I heard.  I've been following progress since the early fund-raising & filming days so it was nice to finally see the finished product.
Loads of crafty folks turned up from all over - a bus full of Glasgow people & even a few girls from Leeds.  Unfortunately social skills are not my strong point so not much chatting from me but did get to hang out with Sandra from www.rubylovesred.com  and Rachael from www.hannahzakari.co.uk  for a while which was fun. 

"Handmade Nation documents the new wave of art, craft and design that is capturing the attention of the nation. It is the feature film debut of director, author, artist and curator Faythe Levine. Levine traveled to 15 cities and covered more than 19,000 miles to interview artists, crafters, makers, curators and community members."

This film is a must see for all crafters, designers and artists looking to make a living from their work, its so inspiring to hear how far some people have gone since the early start up days.

The DVD is available to buy from www.buyolympia.com
