Traveling across the world to sold out crowds, it is Vancouver’s turn to join the handmade revolution!

Join Director Faythe Levine, July 9th, for Western Canada’s premier of Handmade Nation.  Be the first in Vancouver to see the film, meet Faythe Levine and participate in a Q&A and book signing session after the screening.

Tagged as the ‘Ambassador of Handmade’, Faythe Levine has traveled 19,000 miles to document what has emerged as a marriage between historical technique, punk culture, and the D.I.Y. (do-it-yourself) ethos.

A companion book, Handmade Nation – The Rise of D.I.Y., Art, Craft, and Design, features 24 artists, their work environment, their process, their work, and discussions of how they got their start and what motivates them.

Based in Milwaukee, Wisconsin, first time Director Faythe Levine co-owns Paper Boat Boutique & Gallery and founded Art vs. Craft, Milwaukee’s independent craft fair.
