Handmade Nation

by Lucie of Lucie Wicker Photography

Last Monday evening I ventured out into the cold and rain to 4th Wall Project where I caught the screening of Handmade Nation, a documentary by Faythe Levine (who was also in attendance and did a Q&A) about the recent handmade movement in the US. Despite the weather, the place was packed with eager DIY aficionados. In the film, Faythe zigzags across the country, interviewing various crafters and artists in their workspaces and at local craft shows. It reminded me a lot of Etsy's "Handmade Portraits" series. Here is a clip of the opening credits which I particularly enjoyed:

It's always fun for me to see other artisans thriving and doing what they love. If you do too, I'd recommend picking up the DVD and giving it a look!

  1. I'm so bummed I missed it! I'll just have to order mine online until she tours the east coast again!
    Great opening! Thanks for the sneak peak!
