Handmade Nation Documentary and Book
First-time director Faythe Levine traveled across the U.S. in 2006 to document what she calls â€œthe new wave of art, craft, and designâ€ in America. What resulted from this journey is Handmade Nation, the much anticipated documentary and itâ€™s accompanying book available through Amazon.
Levine interviewed 80 artists in their homes and studios to capture the growing â€œart community that is based on creativity, determination, and networking.â€ They are individuals who value handmade over mass-produced items and understand the time and commitment that goes into each item.
Screenings for the documentary have already begun. For details on upcoming screenings, visit the documentaryâ€™s website. You can also watch a preview of the film.
I will be seeing Handmade Nation in May and I am extremely excited to see the film after reading the book.
I would love to hear your thoughts and comments about Handmade Nation.
