For the love of all things handmade...

For those of you who haven't yet heard of the documentary called Handmade Nation, it's a movie you should see. Especially if you love handmade and love to promote locally handmade items. It's a documentary that follows artists, crafters and designers across the US, showing how they do their work, when and if they quit their day jobs and how they feel about the handmade movement. You get an inside peek at what they do, how they do it, what they gave up to do it and the passion that goes in to their work!

This from their webpage…
*"Handmade Nation documents a movement of artists, crafters, and designers that recognize a marriage between historical techniques, punk, and DIY (do it yourself) ethos while being influenced by traditional handiwork, modern aesthetics, politics, feminism and art. Fueled by the common thread of creating, Handmade Nation explores a burgeoning art community that is based on creativity, determination, and networking”.*
It's truly an inspiring documentary, it'll make you want to find the inner artist in you! I recommend it to anyone with even a tiny desire to create things and also to those who love to buy creative, handmade things.
