handmade nation screenings! March 5, 2009

I’m super excited that the Museum of Contemporary Craft has just announced the details for the Handmade Nation film screenings in Portland next month!

Handmade Nation!

It will show Friday, April 3 at 7:30 pm and Saturday, April 4 at 12 noon at the museum. Tickets are on sale now and pretty limited, so be sure and scoop yours up soon! There are cool things going on both days:

Friday: Join director Faythe Levine for the Northwest premiere of Handmade Nation, the documentary companion to the book Handmade Nation: The Rise of DIY, Art, Craft, and Design. Artists featured in the film include Mandy Greer, Jenny Hart, Nikki McClure, Portland’s own Susan Beal and Jill Bliss, and dozens of other crafters nationwide. Tickets to the premiere include a Handmade Nation tote bag filled with crafty goodies. A brief Q&A with Levine will follow the screening. Doors open at 7 pm. Please enter at 720 NW Davis Street, 2nd Floor. ($25)

Saturday: Join director Faythe Levine for a screening of Handmade Nation. Doors open at 11:30 am. A free panel discussion with director Faythe Levine, Susan Beal, Jill Bliss, Kate Bingaman-Burt, and Garth Johnson will follow at 2 pm. Participate in a Crochet-a-thon with artist Mandy Greer from 4 to 6 pm. ($10)

I will be there for the Friday showing (the Northwest premiere!) and after the Saturday screening for the panel and would love to see you if you can make it to either one. And Sunday is Crafty Wonderland‘s third birthday, too, what a fun weekend!
