handmade nation documentaryWe’re kicking off the opening of applications for the Crafty Supermarket holiday show with a screening of the indie craft documentary “Handmade Nation” on Sunday, August 1! Bring a friend and crash on the comfy couches of Red Polly to watch the movie and have a snack or two. Fabricate will be open as well, in case you need an indie craft fix. Before you even ask — yes, it is totally FREE to come! You can RSVP to the Facebook event right here.

Date: Sunday, August 1, 2010
Time: 5:00pm – 7:00pm
Location: Fabricate/Red Polly
Address: 4016 Hamilton Ave., Cincinnati, OH

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.

Today’s craft world has emerged as a synthesis of historical technique, punk culture, and the DIY ethos, also influenced by traditional handiwork, modern aesthetics, politics, feminism and art.

Director Faythe Levine captured the tightly knit community that exists through websites, blogs, and online stores that connect to the greater public through independent boutiques, galleries and craft fairs.

Interviews were conducted on-location in artist studios, homes, boutiques, offices and craft fairs, giving the public an exclusive and rarely seen look into the lives of these creative individuals.
