Crafty Pint are holding a special film screening in Streatham on Wednesday 10th April, giving a rare showing of the film Handmade Nation at The Railway pub. The film is free, but if you reserve a ticket you get entered into a raffle to win some 'crafty' stuff!
"Crafty Pint invite you to join them for an evening of pints and popcorn at their next Crafty Pint evening at Streatham's much loved community pub The Railway.
For one night only, on Wednesday 10 April, Crafty Pint and The Railway are bringing a rare UK screening of Handmade Nation to Streatham.
Handmade Nation documents the new wave of art, craft and design and is the feature film debut of director and artist Faythe Levine. Levine traveled to 15 cities and covered more than 19,000 miles to interview artists, crafters, makers, curators and community members in their studios and homes, giving the public an exclusive and rarely seen look into the lives of these creative individuals and the craft revolution sweeping the nation.
Twenty-four artists from Olympia, Washington to Providence, Rhode Island, and everywhere in between show their work and discuss their lives, including papercut artist Nikki McClure and Sublime Stitching’s Jenny Hart. Levine’s film shows how they have forged a new economy and lifestyle based on creativity, determination, and networking and captures today’s craft world as it emerges as a synthesis of historical technique, punk culture, and the diy ethos, also influenced by traditional handiwork, modern aesthetics, politics, feminism and art.
Thanks to the generous support of The Railway, the film screening will be a free event!
Pre-bookings get a free ticket for our crafty raffle! We have some fabulous prizes, including a copy of State of Craft and a Flaming Nora kit."
