San Francisco Film Society Presents:
SF360 Film+Club: Handmade Nation
March 11 at Mezzanine
Ticket and Event information at http://www.sffs.org
SF360 Film+Club, the Film Society’s acclaimed social screening series, returns with Faythe Levine’s documentary Handmade Nation, following a movement of artists, crafters and designers that imbue traditional handiwork techniques with a punky do-it-yourself ethos. The film explores the burgeoning art community of indie crafters via interviews in the studios and homes of noted and independent artists. Levine also details how the Internet has spurred a once underground movement and how crafts have expanded to connect with the greater public through boutiques, galleries and fairs.
Lisa Congdon, owner of retailer Rare Device; Derek Fagerstrom, co-owner of the Curiosity Shoppe and the Craft and DIY co-editor at design*sponge; Natalie Zee Drieu, Senior Editor of Craft magazine; and Stephanie Syjuco, fine artist and professor; are expected to attend. Displaying and selling their work will be the following artists and vendors: Dutch Door Press, Diana Fayt, Cara Lyndon, Miss Natalie, Mittenmaker, Nous Savons, Sharon Spain, Woolly Hoodwinks, Zum, the Curiosity Shoppe, Little Otsu, Needles & Pens and Rare Device.
Tickets are $8 for SFFS members and $12 for non-members; must be 21+ to attend. Mezzanine is located at 444 Jessie Street in San Francisco.
