Thursday, April 2nd is coming up soon! My fine institution, College of the Redwoods, is sponsoring not one, but TWO screenings of Handmade Nation at the Accident Gallery in Eureka. We just added a second screening due to the brewing excitement. Filmmaker Faythe Levine will be in attendance at both screenings. The making of Handmade Nation was a long and crazy ride involving 19,000 miles of travel on the highways and byways of D.I.Y. America.
I'm incredibly excited to see the final product. After the Eureka screenings, I'll be driving Faythe up to the screenings in Portland at the Museum of Contemporary Craft. Extreme Craft will be representing at a free 2 pm Saturday afternoon panel, where I'll be chatting with Susan Beal (West Coast Crafty, Susanstars), Jill Bliss (Blissen), Kate Bingaman-Burt (Obsessive Consumption), Betsy Greer (Craftivism) and Faythe Levine (Handmade Nation) on a panel moderated by Museum of Contemporary Craft curator Namita WIggers.
See you at the screenings....when I'm not there, you'll probably find me at Voodoo Doughnut!
